About Lil' Croton

The Codiaeum Excurrens Croton, or Lil' Croton to its homies and fans, just wants to be adored. That's why this sensation likes to be placed proudly on display, ideally in your living room, bedroom, or hallway in bright, indirect sunlight for all to see.

Your Codiaeum wants to look its best for its fans, so make sure you regularly water it. Avoid too much humidity - humidity is terrible for hairstyles don't you know? Like any aspiring star, the Lil' Croton can be a bit of a diva, dropping its leaves when it's too cold. Ideally, it likes to be 15-20°C but will tolerate 10°C - especially if performing.

While it has high aspirations to grow up to 2 metres, it is slow getting there and unlikely to reach this as a houseplant. So you don't need to worry about this Lil' Prick becoming too big for its boots (pot).
