How to Water Croton?

Water Croton

Once I bought a croton plant, a very beautiful one, and didn’t know what to do with it. I knew nothing about its right location, watering, filtration, specific points for daily care, how often it needs pruning. Thanks heaven, I have a friend who knows a lot about the vegetable kingdom and these houseplants exactly.

She advised me to water croton heavily, on average 2-3 times per week, and keep it in the place receiving sunlight. By the way, the procedure of pruning croton should be accurate. It is desirable to do it in summer or spring because the plant likes warmth and may have stress when feeling cold. Using the pruning shears just cut the branch above a leaf by 1/3. When establishing the new growth, prune them again and again.

Following my friend’s tips my croton feels well and I also stay at ease. Over 5 years have passed since I purchased it but the plant looks like I bought it yesterday. So I’m happy and think about replenishment!
