Croton is an extensive flowering plant genus in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae.
Crotons are houseplants that normally have variegated leaves with shades of yellow, red, and green.
These beautiful plants are native to Indonesia, so they do well in the warm climates of our houses.
They are a fairly easy plant to grow indoors.
Crotons need a very brightly lit location so that they keep their bright colors.
They enjoy a western or southern window location.
If they have plenty of light the leaves will have more variegation, and the colors will be brighter.
They need to be kept at a minimum temperature of 60°F during the night and around 70°F during the daytime.
If they aren’t kept at this temperature they will begin to drop their leaves.
Crotons need to have their soil evenly moist at all times, they tend to wilt easily if the soil is too dry.
On the other hand, if the soil is too wet, the leaves will turn brown on the edges.
These plants also prefer to have a location with higher humidity.
It is generally recommended that they be placed somewhere with a humidity of 40-80%.
If the humidity isn’t high enough, the plants will drop some of their leaves, and the color of the leaves may not be as vibrant.
The most common problem that people experience with crotons is spider mites.
If the humidity is too low, this tends to make them very susceptible to spider mites.
The best way to get rid of the pests is to apply a miticide and mist them daily.
