Hi. Wondering if someone can ID this plant. Have tried to find what it is online but to no avail.

Thanks for taking your time to answer in advance.

It is a variety of Croton. It likes lots of direct indoor sunlight, cool temps, and moist soil.

I see these growing in FL. Some form of Codiaeum variegatum (commonly called Croton, though Croton is a genus in its' own right, so looking for info by that name can be misleading.)

Looks to be Codiaeum variegation 'Red Banana'.

Thanks for the quick responses all.

Curly Boy is the variety of Croton that I think it might be.

'Curly Boy' has a very pronounced spiral leaf.

It's definitely a Codiaeum variety, but their leaves can change dramatically as they grow and mature (both color & shape), so don't be too quick to stick a label on it. They like bright light (full sun to bright shade, depending on the variety), good strong warmth, and humidity.
