The Croton plant is one of the very colorful thick leafed
tropical rainforest plants that have become common house plants seen in many homes everywhere, not to mention grown in select tropical gardens around the world.
Also known by its botanical name of Codiaeum variegatum this tropical plant is the perfect addition to any home, planter or garden bed.
If you want to get tropical foliage with lots of colors like Yellow, Red, Green, Orange, Dark Red this croton house plant is perfect.
Its good to know that crotons will develop the brightest leaf colors when planted in shifting sun. Which means it will get sun for most of the day with partial shade.
If you grow them in strictly shaded areas you will still have a healthy plant but it will just mostly be green and not have other colors.
These plants can survive in places where the winter months don’t drop below 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit because this will cause these leafs to drop and or may kill the plant.
In areas like this its usually best to grow them indoors or in a greenhouse.
This beautiful plant is native to islands in the Pacific Ocean, Polynesia, southern India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and Malaysia.
Purchase one for your home or garden and learn how to grow them to create a tropical look for your home.
