    My ID skills are lacking, but is this Charmer?

    Looks like something went through the rinse cycle a few times too many.
    These are Charmer, collected in Pinecrest several years ago:

    The mother plant that these cuttings came from is growing in a full sun location.

    Scott,
    Your plant looks like Pinnochio.

    Ricky's photos look like Charmer. Scott I am not so sure on yours. Charmer has a elongated paddle shaped leaf sometimes a small to non existant point. Scott your leaves look like they have a pronounced point. However, you took yours as a cutting. Cuttings sometimes take awhile to mature and show their true leaf characteristics. Did you get a positive I.D. of the mother plant?

    I try to avoid cuttings unless the mother plant has a positive I.D. But that is just my idiosyncracy. When somone asks what is that called, I like to have a name.

    If there is a beautiful colored croton that a cutting can be harvested, go for it. That is why we started getting the bug was because of the colors. :)

    I was looking at the pictures in the Encyclopedia and the pic of Charmer (pg 39) was a close look. But also Aubrey Christian (pg 98). The cuttings came from a 2.5' plant.

    Four more pics without the flash for ID of the cuttings.

    Pinocchio it is. The mother plant looks like the 1st pic of Pinocchio taken by fawnridge in the Palmpedia. Thanks
