    In Indonesia this variety is called “Naomi”, the yellow variety is rare.
    Are there the same varieties in Florida and what are their names?

    That's pretty nice. But I don't think it's around.

    Sergey, your Naomi looks very much like an old Florida cultivar known as Van Houti.

    Thank you, Ray. I’ve looked at Van Houti’s picture in Dr. Frank Brown’s book. It's much more likely it is.
    Leaves are not large, and yellow form has brownish hint on leaves’ underside.

    Sergey - both forms look exceptional. These plants are planted outside so I assume you found these during one of your croton ventures. Did some cuttings make it back to your croton bunker?

    The beautiful yellow version is especially unique. :cool: Thanks for sharing! :)

    Yes, both varieties. The yellow one feels exceptionally good.:)
