On the Sill | Croton Oakleaf

On the Sill Oakleaf Croton - Codiaeum variegatum

Native to the tropical forests of Southeast Asia, the Oakleaf Croton is noted for its oak shaped leaves with beautiful red, orange and green colours.

LIGHT- To help your Oakleaf Croton keep its vibrant colour put it in a spot that receives bright light.

WATER- These guys like to stay evenly moist, and don't like to dry out. If your house is on the dry side you can mist your Croton in between watering.

PRUNING - Other than removing unhealthy leaves, Croton plants need little pruning. Overgrown leaves or branches can be trimmed just above a node or leaf set. Make sure you don't remove more than 1/3 of the stem height at a time.

TOXICITY - Croutons are known to be toxic so keep these guys up and away from your furry friends.
