Banana Croton Short
The Banana Croton is native to the Pacific Islands, Malaysia, and Northern Australia.
This plant can be grown outdoors in warm climates, or indoors year-round!
Crotons have such a wide variety of leaf shapes and colors – all on the same plant. That’s what makes them so special. The Banana Croton has bright yellow and green odd shaped leaves near the base and then tall, slender all green leaves at the top. The yellow and green leaves are tall and narrow, short and wide, and some leaves even have ‘thumbs’.
Use these instructions to care for a Croton. This guide will tell you how to water a Croton; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.
You”ll need bright light for the plant when grown indoors, it's best suited closer to bright windows!
Water once every week or when the top 2 inches of soil feel dry to the touch.
The Banana Croton has poisonous sap, so keep it away from small children and pets.
The croton plant doesn’t really like to be moved, so it’s best to bring it home and put it in a place you want to keep it. Moving this plant can cause it to go into shock and lose its leaves, but no need to worry. The leaves will grow back and your croton will adjust to it’s new home.
