Catching the Early Morning Rays


Esteemed Member
Drinking coffee and and sauntering around the Moose Land we find Ana Lopez getting kissed by the mornings first sun light. I'm sure she is appreciating the warming affect to her leaves.

That Ana needs lots more sun,it can be a very petty plant.

Thanks Mike - you can see from the older leaves that she was in way too much shade while in her container. Planted in an area where she gets more sun, you can observe the new flushes of leaves have more variegation that should pink up nicely with time. This is a croton that is not a shade lover, only intermittent required for it to realize its pink potential. :D
I though Ana Lopez was to turn pink? Am I too early in the season to look for pink ?
