    I've lost track of some planted in the yard. After clearing away some palm fronds today, I rediscovered this one. My pockets of shade are few and far between. Most of my crotons are mostly yellows as a result. Is this Norma or Petra..or ?

    P.S. how do crotons respond to liquid seaweed?

    That appears to be Norma. It's definitely not Petra.

    At one point Norma was everywhere like Petra, now it is not encountered often. :eek:

    Your right, Norma just dosen't show up much anymore. I'm trying to think if I even have a plant. I think, but not too sure.:)
