Tips?
New plant! Whoop! I got it half off at the clearance section of the store. Any tips on caring for and saving it? I have zero experience with this plant but love it already!

It’s a croton! They’re great! And colorful as you can see. This one looks like it’s a little sunburned. But don’t let that worry you. They’re quick to grow new leaves if you give them lots of sunlight (mostly indirect but they can get do some direct). Without adequate sunlight they will lose their good colors. They’re also quite thirsty. So don’t let it dry out too much.
@AlliesTerrarium thank you so much! It gets brigh indirect sunlight where it is now so I hope it won’t lose its colors. Thank you again!
I have two Crotons. Bright indirect sunlight is the way to go so that the colors really pop!! They are slow growers, but can get like 3 feet tall
@Marthamaywho92 Wow! Thank you!
