Croton Mammy Care Guide
Loves bright indirect light, and preferably 4-5 hours of sunlight per day, otherwise its colours will fade.
Keep moist but not sitting in water. You can mist it often.
It likes a warm, humid environment.
Feed with a low-nitrogen, slow-release fertiliser once in early spring and once again in summer.
Clean its leaves often so that its colours can be appreciated.
When it gets stressed, it loses its leaves - if you've just brought it home, wait a few weeks to let it adjust. If it continues to lose its leaves, check that the air around it is not too dry and that it is getting enough light.
