Croton plant Care and Instruction
Croton is colorful, easy to grow plants that are indoor hardy and require very little attention. Croton is excellent houseplant that withstand more neglect than almost any other plant. In the landscape, Croton grows happily in a pot or when planted directly in the ground. They add a colorful accent to any outdoor space, garden or patio. In cooler zones, a containerized Croton can be relocated indoors for the winter months. When you receive your new Croton, there is no need to worry about planting right away. Your new plant can be stored for a while by simply placing it in a bucket with about a half-inch of water and moving it to a shady location, simply water when dry. This will give you plenty of time to select the ideal location for your new Croton.
