I fancy myself to have quite the green thumb- even tho I don’t have a lot of space or natural light in my house.
And let’s face it, some of us got caught up in the excitement of new houseplants last year without learning enough about them to keep them happy healthy and thriving. So now we got some work to do.
I got this super tall gold dust croton off etsy about 8 months ago- and it didn’t take the transition well. It lost almost all its leaves but it has now grown a lot back after finally getting used to the climate.
The short pot I got from a grocery store thinking it was one short bushy plant buuuuut nooooooooo. It started losing leaves (that transition period again) and I saw it was not one, not two but THREE individual plants in a small amount of dirt.
Crotons are beautiful semi tropical plants that grow oblong spotted leaves. As a freckled person, I gravitate towards other speckled things naturally
I used Stonington Blend from Coast of Maine Soils. Hopefully I’ll have a beautiful update to post in a few months. Meanwhile I’m going to read up more on croton care and get ready for my next plant 911.
Until next time, have a wicked good day!
