Croton are famous for their bright coloured leaves, with veins of red, yellow and orange. Its a bright and cheery tropical houseplant that can grow quite tall with proper care. Keep your Croton happy by misting it everyday, as it loves humidity. Water the soil thoroughly, until it drains out the bottom. Only re-water when the top of the soil is dry, to avoid soggy roots. Give your Croton plenty of sunlight, as bright as possible, and keep it away from drafts.
