    Ricky,

    I think these both have some potential as desirable crotons in our collections. Keep them going, and keep us updated as they get bigger. Thanks.

    Did you grow these from seed? If so, how about a little description of your pollination technique? No pun intended. Old Lady

    Old Lady - no, these are seedlings that popped up on their own.

    This seedling looks very similar to Charmer, which just happens to be planted in two places in close proximity to the seedling. It's about 3 years old and growing fast; much faster than Charmer. charmer.jpg
