Known for their lovely leaves in a variety of golden and green hues, the Croton adds a splash of color to a home plant-scape and LOVES a sunny corner and lots of light! They may take a little time to acclimate to their new home--and they need bright sunlight to produce those pretty leaves, so we recommend them for plant parents with a little bit more experience.
CARE LEVEL: Casual Plant Enthusiast
Your Croton Magnificent will do best in a bright spot, as it needs lots of light (if possible 4-6 hrs. Per day) to produce all those colorful leaves! If your croton does not get enough light, you might find the plant grows tall and lanky with spare leaves lacking the rich, dark hues. Water when the top 25%-50% of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer. Crotons appreciate a generous amount of humidity. You can boost the humidity by misting the leaves, placing a humidifier nearby, or adding a pebble tray.
