The Gold Sun Croton is known and loved for its bright and beautiful foliage. To maintain it stunning, he requires lots of bright indirect sunlight. Its green leaves seem to be immersed in gold, hence its name.
He will do best in a sunny spot, as it needs lots of light to keep producing the golden speckles. If your notice that your plant grows tall and skinny, with spare leaves lacking the rich, dark hues, he might not get enough light. To maintain a compact look, cut back any long stems as necessary.
In addition to lots of bright light to encourage their variegation, this beautiful plant will appreciate regular misting. Crotons appreciate a generous amount of humidity.
Plant him in well-drained soils, a mix of perlite and sphagnum moss.
Water daily until the soil is damp. When the soil begins to dry out, water the plant thoroughly until the water flows out the container's bottom, they are not as thirsty as other indoor plants but will drop leaves if kept too dry.
Don't panic if your plant drops a few leaves upon arrival. Generally, the Croton does not like to be moved, so a few falling leaves within a week doesn't mean you are doing anything wrong. It is a slow grower and does well when grouped with other plants.
The plant is 30-25 cm tall and will be shipped in a 12 cm pot.
