Croton Plant with Spider Mites
I got this plant in a basket with others. I replanted it and its survived very well and doesn’t need to be watered very often. What is this plant?
Your plant is a Croton Plant and it looks like it has a serious case of Spider Mites, a sucking plant insect, which is why the bottom leaves are so pale. You can read about a Croton in the Popular HousePlant section of the website. You can also read about Spider Mites and how to treat them in the Glossary of the HousePlant 411.com website.
