Getting To Know Your Croton

Crotons have some of the boldest and brightest foliage around. Often vividly marked with bright yellow, orange, and red, these exotic plants have a reputation for being high-maintenance due to their tropical nature, but once they acclimate to their new home, they’re quite low-care.

    To keep the beautiful markings you need to provide good to bright light. Avoid direct sun exposure and low light conditions.

    Water below leaves (don’t get leaves wet)

  2. Let water run through pot

  3. Water: summer/fall: once weekly Spring/Winter: once every two week
