Codiaeum Variegatum (Croton) Plant Care Guide


Lighting: Croton houseplants need bright light to maintain their colorful leaves.

Water: Allow the top 25%-30% of the soil to dry out before watering.

Soil: The best soil is a basic, well-aerated houseplant potting mix that drains quickly.

Temperature: Use a rich potting soil for your croton houseplants. The soil should be loose and drain well but still retain water.
