Easily grown as an indoor houseplant or outdoor accent plant in
well-drained, humusy soil. Plants need bright light for best leaf color,
with some direct sun. May lose lower leaves in too much shade.
It is a woody-based perennial that typically grows to 6’ tall. Leaves are
oval to lanceolate (to 18” long). Foliage color is distinctive, appearing
somewhat gaudy at times.
Croton plants are tropicals, meaning they thrive in warm and humid
conditions. If your croton’s leaves fall off, it could be that it’s exposed to
cold or hot extremes such as open doors or air ducts. A humidifier or a
regular misting with distilled water will help your croton feel at home.
When the soil on top feels dry, water until the overflow begins to pool
in the tray. To prevent root rot, use a pebbled tray or pour off any pooled
water after 30 minutes. Underwatering can also cause leaf drop on croton
plants. If you’re watering and misting consistently and your croton still
seems dry, consider transplanting it in fresh, high-quality potting soil that
includes peat moss to help retain moisture.
