    Interrupted for sure.

    I have a fairly large mom/daught. and there are a couple stems that are not interupted. But, who knows....this past winter has some of my croton flushing out differently than what it looked like before our freezing winter.

    Same for me here. My Coral Showers just started giving me interrupted leaves again. I was getting worried that the cold had morphed it into a non interrupted leaf plant.

    My Twist and Point is now making tons of interrupted leaves, prior to the winter, only an occasional one. This cultivar is not supposed to have interrupted leaves I believe? :rolleyes:

    After 3 weeks, this plant has won my heart as one of my favorites.

    It's a great one for contrast.

    I am leaning away from the Mother & Daughter ID on this plant. Older leaves are blotching red.

    What kind of light conditions for this blacked out plant? Low light will give you ugly dark leaves. Acclimate that plant to brighter light and swatch it color up.

    Phil. It is growing in filtered sun. New gowth is green, turning dark purple black, then red on dark purple black.
