|Level of Care:
||Medium Care: Crotons can be fussy and do not like to be moved. Find the right spot with the right conditions and your plant will be happy.
||Bright indirect light will keep the colors bright and plant bushy.
||High. You can place the plant on a pebble tray filled with water, use a humidifier or mist regularly to increase indoor humidity.
