These plants, scientifically called codiaeum, are ordinarily known as “croton.” They are simple plants that acquire more robust colours when exposed to brighter sun. Many people keep them as houseplants that serve as decorative items.
They are easy to grow and nurture. They serve as inmates of a house, too! They speak a silent language that is understandable if proper care and attention can be given to them.
We need to marvel at these simple leafy plants. They praise the glory and beauty of God. They touch our hearts and help us ponder beyond our physical world.
