List of files and visuals associated with this text.

Croton is a hard to grow house plant with brightly colored leaves. Best foliage color develops in high light to semi-sun. Allow the soil surface to dry slightly between waterings. Any house plant fertilizer may be used according to label directions during the growing season. Croton requires a minimum temperature of 60 degrees with ideal temperatures falling between 60 and 85 degrees. Repot in March and expect lower leaves to drop as the plant ages. Croton responds to extra humidity but leaf drop occurs in low humidity or temperatures below 50 degrees.

Propagation is by air layering or stem tip cuttings. Cuttings are taken in spring or summer and rooted at temperatures between 70 degrees and 80 degrees.
