    It looks like Pinocchio which needs a lot of light to keep its good color.

    I got one from the same guy... or is mine something different?
    While we're discussing Pinocchio, is it the same plant as Mora?
    They certainly look the same - I assume Pinocchio is the older (original?) name??

    Yes, yours is a Pinocchio too. It's sometimes called Freckles in error. Freckles is a very different croton. I've never heard of Mora.

    I love mine! It needs a little sun to color up.
