This Croton reminds us of autumnal leaves and firework displays!

The Croton Mammy is native to Australia, Malaysia and the Pacific Islands.

I am one of the boldest houseplants around with multi-colored foliage that grow in spirals in all directions being my stand-out feature. I may reward you with flowers if kept in warm, bright conditions - but who needs flowers when you've got leaves like mine?

Fact: The oil of the Croton which was once used in herbal medicine as a violent purgative, is extracted from its seeds.

Croton Mammy Care Guide

Light

I like really bright indirect light, and preferably 4-5 hours of sunlight each day, otherwise my colours will fade.

Water

Keep me moist but not sitting in water. You can mist me often.

Temperature

I like a warm, humid environment.

Feeding

Feed me with a low-nitrogen, slow-release fertilizer once in early spring and once again in summer.

Grooming

You will need to clean my leaves often so that my colors can be appreciated.

Care

When I get stressed I lose my leaves - if you've just brought me home, wait a few weeks to let me adjust. If I continue to lose my leaves, check that the air around me is not too dry and that I'm getting enough light.
