CARE AND MAITNANCE:
- Soil Rich soil that is loose and fast-draining soil.
- Light Croton houseplants need bright light to maintain their colorful leaves. If there is insufficient light, new leaves are green not predominantly yellow, red, or orange. Too much direct sun causes phototoridation, a condition that makes Croton leaves gray and dull looking.
- Watering Allow the top 25%-30% of the soil to dry out before watering. Crunchy leaves indicate over-watering.
- Temperature 70°-80°F + high humidity.
- Fertilizing Fertilize a croton monthly in the spring and fall and every two weeks in the summer.
