Crotons are houseplants that normally have variegated leaves with shades of yellow, red, and green. They were originally found in Indonesia so they do well in the warm climates of our houses. They are a fairly easy plant to grow indoor.
- Plant Type. Indoor
- Product Height. 2-3 ft
- Season. Summer
- Sunlight. They need to be kept at a minimum temperature of 60°F during the night and around 70°F during the daytime. If they aren’t kept at this temperature they will begin to drop their leaves.
- Location. Crotons need a very brightly lit location so that they keep their bright colors. They enjoy a western or southern window location. If they have plenty of light the leaves will have more variegation and the colors will be brighter.
- Watering. Crotons need to have their soil evenly moist at all times, they tend to wilt easily if the soil is too dry. On the other hand if the soil is too wet the leaves will turn brown on the edges.
- Special Care. Croton plants do not like to be moved, and when they are moved, they can quickly go into shock which results in leaf loss. Therefore, it is best to avoid moving the plant as much as possible.
