An ornamental plant seen at the Flower Show in Jijamata Udyan, Mumbai on 19/2/11.

A cultivated, potted plant with only leaves, no flowers.

Kindly id.


a side view and size of leaf would have helped …. for better id but as is : a guess…. is this one of the many (I mean many many )
cultivars of the variegated croton: Codiaeum variegatum
form now on may be you can start taking more than one pic….please

No this is also Araliaceae, may be Polyscias filicifolia.


the reddish midrib led me to think it may be a croton, i have had some crotons with them…
but now reading this : Plant book it describes purplish midvein…
but the three leaflets are bothering me…


It may be Dizygotheca elegantissima “Bianca”,  False Aralia


The plant in my post looks very close to Garden drama
