Codiaeum variegatum

Croton (S)


A popular houseplant, Croton features wildly variegated leaves with sunset reds, oranges, yellows, and/or purples and greens. A great choice for bright spots, Croton's are also prized for their air purification benefits. Native to Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia and the Pacific, there are hundreds of varieties of these stunning plants with varying leaf shapes and colour combinations.


Best in bright indirect light or filtered sunlight to maintain maximum leaf colour. Keep soil evenly moist in summer and drop to fortnightly watering in winter. Apply slow release or liquid fertiliser and regular misting during growing period. Low humidity or temperature will cause a Croton to drop its leaves. Prune back at start of growing season.
