Croton Mammy Care Guide
I like really bright indirect light, and preferably 4-5 hours of sunlight each day, otherwise my colours will fade.
Keep me moist but not sitting in water. You can mist me often.
I like a warm, humid environment.
Feed me with a low-nitrogen, slow-release fertilizer once in early spring and once again in summer.
You will need to clean my leaves often so that my colors can be appreciated.
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.
