Crotons are very popular because of their bright, magnificent, colourful foliage with very distinctive shiny, leathery, large, thick leaves.
- Light: Bright, direct sunlight. The southern or western window is preferred for the most abundant light.
- Water: The soil should be kept moist, never soggy. Regular watering is essential, but do not overwater and never allow the soil to dry out completely. Usually watering once a week is ideal, varying according to your house temperature and sun exposure.
Tip: If you notice the leaves browning along the edges, you’re using too much water. If the leaves are turning green your plant needs more sunlight, simply move it to a sunner spot, such as a south-facing window.
CAUTION: Toxic if ingested.
