Botanical Name: Codiaeum Variegatum. Common Names: Rushfoil and Croton. There are many variations in leaf shape and size with multi-colored and exotic in appearance. The Croton plant requires moderate to bright light, so keep the plant within 3 - 5 feet of a window receiving sunlight. In tropical or subtropical climates grow similar types in a row as a colourful hedge or screen, or use as an accent plant in part shade. Its height is 3 ft (90 cm).
Soil: Peat moss based potting mix.
Watering: Heavy watering and high humidity environment favors the growth of a croton plant. However, heavy watering does not mean over-watering the plant. If the plant does not get enough water, and then its leaves would fall and start to slope downwards. If the tips of the leaves start taking a brown color, then this indicates poor water supply to the plant. Over-watering of the plant is indicated by wilting. During winters, the croton plant would come to a halt in its growing process and so less water will be required.
