  • If you need color in your life, try a Croton plant!. Croton plants grow great in our area during the growing season and can be kept in a pot. You can grow them outdoors (they love the heat!) or keep them indoors as house plants. Several colors available, collect them all!.


  • Croton Growing Tips:


  • Best time to plant: We recommend to keep this plant in a pot in non-tropical areas. Unless you're willing to cold protect it in ground during the winter.


  • Sun: This plant requires shade when temperatures reach 100F+. It does ok in the full shade but it won't grow as fast as if given bright light.


  • Winter: Cold sensitive. It will start to take damage at prolonged exposure in the low 30F's.


  • Root system: Shallow Fibrous roots.


  • Growth structure: Naturally a bush but it can be pruned as a tree. It may grow up to 10ft tall.


  • Watering: Water frequently. Use the "finger" test to set your watering schedule. (check out our youtube videos for more information).


  • Fertilization: In containers, any slow release fertilizer will work. In ground, compost and mulch is all you will ever need. No special fertilizers needed.


  • Container Grown: It does great in a container. Only up-pot in increments, never from small to huge. A bigger pot will not make your plant grow faster...


  • Personal Growing Tip: Croton plants are fun plants to have. They come in many colors. Easy to grow, simply water and add some food once a year and done. "The" most cold sensitive plants we carry. They will take damage at low 30F's. For this reason, It's best to keep in a pot and bring it in the house during the winter. They love the heat and actually grow faster if kept outside during the growing season. They can also be grown indoors but due to the lack of light and heat, they tend to grow slower.
