Unknown HousePlant – Help Identify


I have a houseplant and have no idea of the name/type. As shown in the picture, the dark green leaves are curved and about 8-9 inches long. On the leaves, there are random yellow dots and every now and then, there will be bright yellow coloration on the edge of a leaf. Any help would be appreciated. Bill

Hi Bill,


Your plant is called a Croton, the variety is a Curly Leaf Croton. There are complete care instructions for a Croton (different variety is pictured  but care is the same) in the Popular HousePlant section of the website.
