It looks great!

My very large plant wilted severely due to extreme drying. I thought it was because of the recent cold snap. I'm so happy it perked back up and looks great, now! :>)

I am glad it recovered as this is very attractive plant. Grown also as small trees here.

Thanks you! :>)

It usually grows as a shrub here in San Diego. My largest one is about 6ft (3m) tall.

Crotons are really tropical and extremely sensitive to any cold.

Mine is on ventilation. Both Mammy and the above Petra. One 33f night just wilted them. Covered too.

They really despise temps below 40 degrees F. Close to freezing, they just won't tolerate.
