Colorful Crotons For Indoors Now and Outside Later
By: Pam Beck
Eye-catching Crotons easily chase away wintertime blues because the warm colors of their variegated leaves intensifies in cooler temperatures and bright sunlight. During winter months keep Crotons out of drafts and fluctuating temperatures to avoid leaf drop, hold back on fertilizer until spring, and remember to only use tepid water. You can begin moving your Crotons outdoors for vacation once nighttime temperatures remain around 50 degrees Fahrenheit and higher. Crotons grow best in fertile, organic-rich soil. I recommend Black Gold® Waterhold Cocoblend Potting Soil.
