Crotons Are The Flamboyant Yet Finicky Plant You’ve Never Heard Of

People love the dramatic yellow, orange, silver, red, white —or even black — multi-colored leaves of croton plants, but don’t know they can also be quite challenging to grow. When I asked about them at a local plant shop, they said that they don’t even carry them because they tend to drop their leaves during transport, so you may need to hunt around to find them.

My apartment—especially the bedroom and bathroom—doesn’t get great light thanks in part to only having windows in the front and one side of the condo. Combine that with the windows I do have being mostly shaded by giant banyan trees and my plant parent future wasn’t looking too bright. However, I took a chance on a snake plant in my recent bathroom makeover , and guess what? It’s still kicking months later with little to no attention or sunshine.

The Under $5 Floral “Filler” You’re Passing Up But Shouldn’t

Fresh cut flowers for my home are a little luxury I like to indulge in when I can. They make my rooms feel instantly energized and just make me happier, plain and simple. Plus, according to this article , they can also prompt you to keep your home tidier, and I’ll take all the motivation I can get! The only problem is, lush and lovely arrangements, when bought repeatedly, can become a bit of an expense, which usually holds me back from always having florals on display. That is, until I ditched the actual flowers and opted for a “filler” instead.
