Saw this plant yesterday and knicked a branch.
I think it's Pinoccho..
Not sure about that ID,My Pinnichio looks different from your picture??
Doesn't look like Pinocchio. Not sure what it is, but all of mine have spots.
Compared it to these photos from the Croton Encyclopedia, seemed similar to me
Here are some closeups for comparison
One observation..... this plant is exposed to intense sunlight.
It looks like the Pinocchio in my yard, a very robust grower and good in full sun. The tree behind it looks like Ashoka, an interesting tree starting to show up more often in the Florida landscapes. I read that it's very common in India, which would explain why it's in Trinidad.
99% - Pinocchio.
Pinoсchio is fantastically variable. Guess who is in the picture below?
Growing conditions – light in abundance, low temperature.
The younger leaves show spots
