Croton 'Sunny Star' (Codiaeum variegatum) - 3" pot-

$4.49

Quantity Available: 13

Croton 'Sunny Star' (Codiaeum variegatum) is a beautifully colored plant native to Indonesia, Malaysia and Australia.  It has an upright growth with long, narrow leaves spotted with gold running throughout. It has a woody stem and is technically considered an evergreen shrub. It can grow in size to 10' tall when planted outside in tropical climates and after a number of years. Water normally and don't allow the soil to remain wet. Allow to dry between watering. Crotons love humidity and will appreciate a humidity tray beneath the pot,  but will also do well in common household humidity levels. Crotons are sensitive plants to being moved and will go into shock and drop leaves. This is completely normal and the leaves will grow back quickly. It is best to pick a spot in the home and try not to move the plant too much. They are also sensitive to temperatures and will drop leaves if the temp gets below 60 degrees. 

 

USDA Hardiness Zone 9-11
