Croton plants (Codiaeum variegatum) are incredibly varied plants that are often grown as houseplants. To keep the leaves vibrant and colorful, provide ample bright-indirect light. Like many houseplants, caring for a Croton involves proper watering and humidity. Because it is a tropical plant, it does benefit from high humidity, so placing it on a pebble tray or providing regular misting will help keep it looking its best. Croton growing in containers should be watered only when the top 1-2 inches of the soil is dry to the touch. Then, they should be watered until the water flows out the bottom of the container. Remove excess water to avoid root rot. Fertilize once per month in the growing season.
