Croton

With good humidity, this plant is easily grown as a houseplant. Use a well-drained humusy potting mixture. Plants need bright light for best leaf color, with some direct sun. May lose lower leaves in too much shade. Plants also prefers high humidity. Consider standing plant on bed of wet pebbles to increase humidity. Water regularly to keep soils moist, but not wet, during the growing season. Does not require winter dormancy, but appreciates a resting period with reduced watering from fall to late winter.
