The Croton (Codiaeum variegatumis) is a low-maintenance colorful evergreen shrub that is native to Malaysia and India. There are many hybrid varieties of Croton and their shiny multicolored variegated and thick leaves are some of the most colorful in the plant world. They thrive indoors in direct sunlight above 65 degrees and outdoors in zones 10-11. They should be watered when the top inch of soil is dry. During dryer cooler temperatures they should be misted and kept over a small tray of water filled with pebbles so that their roots do not sit in the water. During the growing season feed with a little bit of weak liquid fertilizer. When potting up your Croton use any ordinary potting mix with part perlite that drains well. Shipping and handling can be very tough on live plants so please be sure to open and check your plant right away. Don’t worry if your Croton drops a few leaves, it will acclimate quickly. Our plant team gives each plant a drink before they are individually shipped and wrapped so they may not need to be watered right away. We are unable to ship this plant to California due to restrictions by the California Department of Agriculture. Please be aware that if your pet is a plant chewer this plant can be toxic.
