Family: Codiaeum variegatum

How Much Water?

Keep your Croton evenly moist in the summer and reduce watering in the winter to biweekly. Mist frequently during the growth period.

How Much Sun?

Crotons need bright, indirect light. They do not like unfiltered, direct sunlight, but thrive in dappled sunlight. Vibrant colors depend on bright light.

Best Temp & Humidity?

Keep the room above 60°F and do not expose the plant to cold drafts.

Humidity, along with the lack of bright light, also affects the color of the leaves. Croton thrives is higher humid spaces.

Plant Tips:

The more bright sunlight a Croton receives, the more colorful their foliage. If they are in a spot with less sunlight, new leaves will emerge with more green.

Any Cautions?

All parts of the croton are toxic to humans and pets. The sap is a skin irritant, so it's best to wear gloves when removing leaves or taking cuttings—anything that might release sap.
