🌿 Botanical Name: Codiaeum variegatum

🐾 Pet Warning: Toxic to cats and dogs if ingested. It's best to keep this plant away from pets to prevent any potential health issues.

💧 Care Level: Moderate to High. Crotons are known for their specific care requirements, particularly in terms of light and humidity.

📏 Approximate Size: Crotons can grow to be about 3 to 8 feet tall and 3 to 6 feet wide, with wide, colorful leaves.

Description: Croton plants are prized for their vibrant, multicolored foliage that can include shades of yellow, red, and purple, alongside green. The leaves can be broadly ovate or can have narrow, elongated shapes, depending on the variety.

🌞 Light: Prefers bright, indirect light and can tolerate direct sunlight. High light levels are required to keep the foliage vibrant and colorful.

💧 Water: Keep the soil evenly moist but allow the top inch to dry out before watering again. Crotons are sensitive to fluoride and chlorine in tap water, so filtered or distilled water is preferable.

💦 Humidity: Requires high humidity to thrive. Use a humidifier, mist the plant regularly, or place it on a pebble tray with water to increase ambient moisture.

🌡️ Temperature: Ideal temperatures range from 60°F to 85°F (16°C to 29°C). Protect from drafts and ensure the temperature remains consistent.

❄️ Hardiness: Not frost-tolerant. Should be kept indoors in most climates, away from cold drafts and windows.

🌱 Fertilizing: Fertilize with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every month during the growing season. Reduce fertilizing frequency during the fall and winter months.

🔄 Re-potting: Re-pot in the spring every 1 to 2 years or when the plant becomes root-bound. Use a well-draining soil mix designed for houseplants.

🌱 Propagation: Crotons can be propagated from stem cuttings that include several leaves. Dip the cut end in rooting hormone and place in a well-draining soil mix. Keep warm, humid, and ensure indirect light.
