Croton Houseplant

Gift Plant
Item #28755


Codiaeum variegatum

Very resilient and easy to keep growing.

The Croton (Codiaeum variegatum) plant makes a show-stopping houseplant. Its leaves are variegated and vivid in color, with varying combinations of green, yellow, red, orange, and purple. Croton's kaleidoscopic foliage symbolizes change, so it makes a great housewarming, retirement, or gift for someone who is going off to college.

By nature, this tropical plant needs time to acclimate to its new home; but with consistent watering, misting, and possibly some pruning, it will adapt beautifully and provide endless, everchanging color, developing its best hues when grown in bright light.

The benefits of Croton don't stop at beauty and low maintenance. Houseplants increase the quality of our lives and contribute to our overall well-being. Plants in the home help us breathe easier by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen; by removing toxins to purify the air; and by increasing the humidity in the air, reducing dry skin, colds, sore throats, and coughs. There are even studies showing that houseplants reduce stress and sickness, boost creativity, and increase focus and productivity.

Warning! All parts of the croton plant, including leaves, roots, blooms and stems, are poisonous, so place plants in a safe location out of the reach of pets.
