The croton plant, or Codiaeum variegatum, is a perennial evergreen shrub, native to India and Malaysia. The name “croton” comes from a Greek word for tick, as the croton seed resembles a tick in shape. This tropical plant has thick, leathery leaves of varying colors, shapes, and sizes. As it ages, the plant’s color may darken to nearly black. Crotons are one of the boldest houseplants with colorful foliage to decorate your inner or outer space. Crotons are also indoor air purifier plants.
Croton Gold Dust plants are found in landscapes and indoors as houseplants solely for their good looks. The plants grow to a maximum height of about 3 feet, although other members of the Croton family grow up to 6 feet.
Their gold-flecked leaves with deep green color and their beautiful appearance make it the best foliage plant for decorative purpose. Croton is typically offered as an indoor plant, but can also be used outdoors as a seasonal accent plant in containers or plantings of annuals or mixed ornamentals.
Place your croton where it will receive morning sunlight each day. It require well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Water only when the soil feels dry to touch. Apply organic fertilizers during spring and rainy season. When a plant outgrows in current pot, re-pot with fresh potting soil and some fertilizer.
