    Jose, Is the plant in front the one that I got at the auction? I know you showed me a picture on your phone after I got it. I hope it is that one, because it is incredible.

    Jose, You need to give this one a name. It is too nice for me to just have "Unnamed Jose Lopez Hybrid". Over the coming months I want to put permanent name tags at the base of each croton. I was going to just throw a temporary name on it like, Snowcapped, Florida Snow, or Snowy Lopez, because of the illusion of snow on it, but it needs a real name from the person who created it. If I ever have a seedling that turns out this nice I will come up with my own name, but this is all yours. Same thing with that amazing seedling I got from you at the auction. If you ever come up with a name for them please let me know so I can do them justice. Thanks, Karl

    Hi Karl I like Snowcapped, that can be the permanent name. It fits the croton. I will give you one tip, if you pinch the tip the top of the new leaves, it will grow more branches like a bush. Use rich moist soil, filtered light or full sun is the best, and always try to keep out scales.
