I received a gold dust croton as a gift at work in 2002. Now it\'s gotten so tall it\'s encroaching on my bosses office. It\'s also starting to look unhealthy, I know it needs a bigger pot, but I\'m thinking of taking it home an putting it outside. I live is south Texas and the place I was going to put it gets full afternoon sun. I would take it in the house when it gets cold which is probably nov-feb. do you think it would live outside? Or is it even a gold dust croton?
