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. Once you do, you have to really know what you’re doing to keep this diva of a plant happy. But, if you think you’re up to the challenge, here’s a croton cheatsheet.

10 Plants that Thrive in Humid Spots (a.k.a. Your Bathroom)

You don’t have to have a green thumb to get your gardener on, especially indoors. Our favorite cheat? Park a plant in your bathroom so it benefits from the constant moisture circulating in the air. Not all species are created equal when it comes to light exposure though, so choose wisely. Some favor sun-drenched spaces while other just may surprise you by growing in a tiny dark bath. Keep in mind that some plants can be toxic to animals and even people when ingested, so do your research before you buy and keep them out of the reach of kiddos and furry friends. And in the meantime, check out these plant varieties that thrive wonderfully in your washroom, depending on how much light you’ve got working (or against) you.

Along with attracting harmful pests, too much dust on your plant’s leaves can make it hard for your houseplants to absorb light and properly photosynthesize (remember that from elementary school?).
