Crotons have some of the boldest and brightest foliage around. Often vividly marked with bright yellow, orange, and red, these exotic plants have a reputation for being high-maintenance due to their tropical nature, but once they acclimate to their new home, they’re quite low-care.
Crotons prefer their soil to stay consistently moist. Be sure you’re not over or under watering your plant. Keep a consistent watering schedule–water when the top 2”-3” of the soil are dry.
If you accidentally let your Croton’s soil dry out completely, you may see leaves go limp, droop, and possibly drop. If the soil is extremely dry all the way through the pot, a good soak is in order.
The more bright sunlight a Croton receives, the more colorful their foliage. If they are in a spot with less sunlight, new leaves will emerge with more green.
