    Plant ID!!! HELP!!!

    A relative has this in their house and we thought it would be a swell idea to make some cuttings to root and give to other family members... Just don't know what it is. Her daughter rescued it when it was really small and then it grew into this. My relative said that it used to have white, fuzzy little flowers that smelled really good every year but it stopped many years ago.

    It's growing indoors next to a window. It's getting low light I guess... It has red-pink-orange-yellow mottled leaves as you can see. They are tall with a few branches.







    TIA

    It called a croton (Codiaeum variegatum) a very common indoor house plant. Never seen one flower before though

    I would suggest cutting off a piece and just sticking it in moist potting soil. If you have any, dust the ends with rooting hormone. I think I've had this before, and I *think* it roots rather easily.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    Air-layering often works on housplants like this.
