    Easy to look after and with a rapid growth the Croton has definitely only advantages!

    Looking after advice:
    - Water your Croton regularly and moderately.
    - Do not hesitate to spray water onto its foliage if the air becomes too dry.

    - Give it fertilizer every 8 to 15 days.
    - Ensure that the soil is moist during the growing period (spring, summer).
    - The rest of the year let the soil dry out before watering.

    - With its rapid growth, an annual re-potting is necessary, in the spring.
    - It withstands pruning but be careful as the sap that runs out is toxic. A tip is to spray tepid water onto the branches that have just been cut, to accelerate healing.
