Medium Light Plants


The Croton can be tricky to look after; its main needs are warmth with a minimum temp. of 60'F and a high humidity. Achieve the latter by standing the pot on a tray of moist pebbles and mist the leaves regularly. During a mild shower of rain stand your plant outside to freshen it up. Indoors place your croton on an east or west facing windowsill away from cold draughts. Water well in the growing season, preferably with tepid water, and feed at this time of year using a good houseplant fertiliser. During the winter let your plant have a rest by watering sparingly and cease feeding.
