I love the color on these. Mine will dramatically droop letting me know it needs water. Then perks right back up like nothing happened. Always shooting out new growth.

Extremely hardy. Mine has been through a lot and it’s still hanging on. The gold spots on the leaves are really beautiful.

This thing is such a baby. Overnight after a few days since watering I’ll wake up to the leaves completely drooling down. After a little water it springs back up within a few hours. I love that it’s a low light thriving plant. As long as you catch those droopy leaves in time and leave it in full/partial shade it will be fine

This is my first croton and I got it 2 days ago when I rescued it with some other plants. I can’t wait to help this one grown and see all the amazing leaves it will produce

This plant variety seems to be super sensitive to environment and temperatures.

She browned and wilted so quickly. I’m still trying to see if revival is possible but with winter coming on soon I’m not very hopeful. She was a beautiful plant when I got her and with a little more research I would love to try again with something similar!

I love this plant but a lot of people hate on crotons. I’ve had mine for just over a year and it has been consistently putting out 3-6 new leaves every couple weeks. Beautiful plant!

A beautiful plant with lovely variegation, but needs more light than “indirect light” implies.

This a true DIVA! She attracts all the “Bad Boys”; Spider mites, Fungus gnats, but she keeps going.

This is my husband’s project. He loves houseplants with colors. Crotons are not in my wheelhouse. Somehow we’ve managed to keep Croter happy/ish. The leaves do brown. But we have kept it watered, fertilized twice with liquid fertilizer and just let this guy be. Beautiful foliage, all the colors of fall… fingers crossed on its survival through winter.

I got this plant about 2 weeks ago. It seems to like direct & indirect sun. Keep the soil moist. Spray the leaves for humidity and you’ll be good

Beautiful and full of colour! Our croton flowered slightly earlier than the average which was really cool. Opens up so much in direct sun too.
But try not to get any of the sap on your hands or pets, can be very nasty!

This baby just died so quickly on me. It got root rot SO easily and so quickly there was no saving it. What’s left of it is in water trying to grow stronger roots, but it is just a white stick with no leaves. One of the most concerning plant deaths as I just don’t know how I went wrong! Be wary and experienced with this one!
