Crotons prefer morning sun or bright indirect sunlight and thrive in moist, well-draining soil. Fertilize once per month during spring and summer with a thin layer of compost or a diluted low-potency chemical fertilizer. Crotons do not like to be moved and will lose their leaves when shocked. Regular misting is recommended to prevent pest infestation and keep the edges of the leaves from browning.
