i don't know what this beast is.

my daddy picked this plant/tree up for me at a flea market. i have no idea what it is. my mother says it's a kind of rubber tree, but i'm pretty doubtful.
my apologies for the lack of quality in my pictures. my camera is a pooper.

        Crotons are tropical plants. In your area, you should keep it near a warm window so it can get some light during the colder months. If the leaves start to drop, it may signal the need for more watering.
