    It is different from the Cronstadt, these leaves are short, curly, and compact. It is like a miniature tai.

    Jose and Jeff,

    It could be Dreer #3 but I'm not certain. Jose's plant is small and the leaf length can certainly change as the plant matures. Don't rule out Cronstadt because the color suggests that's what it is. I'll do a side by side comparison between Cronstadt and the Dreer plant. .

    Hello Ray, I have a cronstadt and a dreer #3 and i noticed they are not the same. This croton that i have is almost 2 years old and it looks like a miniature tai.
