Shop purchase

Nowadays, most people either buy their indoor flowers in stores, or receive them as a gift on the occasion of some kind of celebration. If you belong to the first number, then you have a great opportunity to choose a healthy flower.

The first thing you need to pay attention to is the state of the leaves of croton. They should be strong and glossy, bright colors and with distinct veins. If you see that the leaves are lowered down, and there are holes on the trunk, indicating that the plant is losing leaves, then it is better to refuse to buy such a flower.

After you have brought croton home, you need to transplant it into a permanent pot with good soil. To do this, mix peaty, hardwood, turfy ground with sand, in equal quantities. At the bottom of the pot must be put drainage. Croton is transplanted as follows:

  • 2 hours before transplanting the flower should be poured abundantly with water. This will make the earth ball more dense, and the flower can be easily removed from the pot without damaging its roots.
  • An earthen ball should be placed in a larger pot, and covered with roots with new soil.

A pre-watered plant is better adapted to new conditions, and will be adopted more quickly in a new place.

Young plants should be transplanted annually, and adults - once every 2-3 years, as the roots grow. This is best done in the spring. In this case, you must use rubber gloves, as Croton releases poisonous juice.

Where to put the pot with Croton?

When placing this flower in the house is worth considering several factors. Croton feels great in a well-lit room, but does not tolerate direct sunlight, which in spring and summer can leave burns on its beautiful leaves.

But in the winter it is better to put the flower on the south window, and he will only benefit from direct rays. By the way, the coloring of croton leaves depends on the lighting. The lack of light can manifest itself in the fact that the leaves will lose their decorative effect and will have an even green color.

In addition, you should not put a flower near the heating devices. He also does not like drafts. If you saw that the leaves of the croton became sluggish, changed their color and began to fall off, then this means that the place for the flower was chosen incorrectly.


Croton grows well at a temperature of + 20 ° C ... + 22 ° C, but it should not fall below 16 ° C, otherwise the leaves will begin to fall, and the roots will rot. If the room is too hot, then it is necessary to increase the humidity in it.

Croton loves abundant watering very much, but you should not overdo it, too, otherwise the roots may rot. Water the flower should be defended with warm water. In summer, this procedure is best done every other day, and in winter - 2 times a week. The most suitable time for this is morning and evening.

It is also recommended to spray the croton leaves regularly, and wipe them once a week with a damp cotton swab. To avoid excessive dryness of the roots, you can use a pallet filled with stones with water. Only between the pot and the water should be a small distance so that the roots are not completely submerged in water.

This flower must be regularly fertilized. In the summer, this should be done once a week immediately after watering, and in winter - once a month. Fertilizers intended for ornamental deciduous plants should be used for feed.

How croton breeds?

If your flower grows well, then you can think about its reproduction. Croton can be grown from seeds or cuttings. Most often use cuttings 15 cm long with strong glossy leaves. Like all euphorrhoids, the cutting of the cutting must be washed in order to wash off the poisonous juice.

After that, it must be thoroughly dried. Then the stalk must be put in a container with a growth stimulator. This will accelerate the germination of the roots. Stalk should be planted in the ground and cover with a can. From time to time it needs to be aired and watered with thermal settled water. The stalk should take root in about a month. After that it can be transplanted into a permanent pot.

Croton diseases

Like all indoor plants, this flower can also be susceptible to various diseases and pests. But more often a florist has a question - why do croton leaves fall?

The leaves of this plant are indicators of its health. If the light does not suit him, the temperature regime or it is poorly watered, then this instantly affects the state of the leaves, and they begin to fall off. By the way, it is possible to determine from them what exactly Croton doesn’t like:

  • if the tips of the leaves began to dry out, then the flower lacks moisture in the soil and the air,
  • brown spots on the leaves are a sign of sunburn,
  • the reason for the pale leaves is insufficient lighting
  • the brown hem says the plant is cold
  • if the leaves fall, then Croton may not have enough moisture, fertilizer, or just a sudden change in temperature.

Croton is a rather capricious flower in its care, but its beautiful leaves more than compensate for this.

Photo Gallery

Croton variegatum (codiaeum variegatum) became the progenitor of room codiaeum, from which many varieties were derived, differing in shape, color of leaf plates and plant size.

  1. Angustifolium. Covered with long pointed leaves, up to 1.5 cm wide. Most often there is a pattern in the form of golden spots.
  2. Appendage (appendiculatum). The oval at the base of the sheet, which then narrows, as if tightened with a belt and expands further. It seems that the plate consists of two parts, one of which is larger and the other smaller.
  3. Codium curly (crispum). A very beautiful variety of Croton, which, besides bright colors, has narrow wavy leaves. With proper care, they form a lush curly crown.
  4. Oval-shaped variety (ovalifolium codiaeum). Covered with oval rounded leaves with speckled markings along the veins.
  5. Flat sheet (platyphyllum). It has wide leafy plates with wavy edges.
  6. Tortie croton (tortile). Interesting wide at the base and pointed at the tips of leaves with a spotty pattern.

Petra Petra (Codiaeum pictum Petra)

It has oval lobed leaf blades. The large, smooth leaves of this representative codiaeum alternate around the branching stem. The color palette of this plant is great.

Leaves can have various shades of green without impregnations, can blaze red or yellow stripes. This is a large flower that looks like a tree, so it’s best to place it on the floor, not far from the window.

Excellent (Codiaeum Excellent)

It differs from other varieties of this species in the carved form of leaves and small size. The leaves of this exotic bush are shaped like oak with bright multi-colored veins.

Croton Mammy (Codiaeum mammi)

Unusual variety, which is popular among florists, due to the shape of the leaves. The foliage of a flower is narrow, twists into a spiral, and creates a curly crown. The colors are green, red and pink.

Tamara (Codiaeum Tamara)

It has long leaves with green lines and spiral tips. This variety ordered the English Emperor to be brought out for his girlfriend and called the flower by her name.

Reference. The color of the leaves depends on the duration and brightness of the lighting. Whichever variety is chosen, if you place a flower away from light, its foliage will remain green. When the plant is located in a well-lit place, the leaves will play with bright colors.

Garden species

This is a lush sprawling bushes or trees with large bright leaves that can decorate a winter garden or greenhouse. If you create a plant conditions close to tropical, you can get large specimens that will please with bright colors and a variety of leaves and stems.

Croton variegated (pictum) is the most suitable for growing in a greenhouse, as it is less demanding to care. The complexity of caring for hybrid species comes down to the amount of light and moisture that a plant receives.

With age, the color of the foliage becomes brighter and more saturated.

Codia can do with a small amount of sunlight and poor irrigation, but to get a really beautiful tropical plant, you need to make an effort.

Spiral Spirale

The amazingly shaped leaves of this subspecies are simply unique. They have a long shape that twists around the midrib.

Crotons - very unpretentious in the care. Growing at home a tropical wonder is a pleasure that does not constitute labor. But there are some rules, and they must be observed.

Illumination and temperature

This plant loves light. For him to pick a bright place in the house. Croton signals a lack of lighting by changing the color of the leaves. Their bright variegation is lost and fade, the leaf plates turn green.

But direct sunlight can burn the leaves, so in the summer, you should carefully pritenyat bush. Otherwise, they may appear spots - burn lesions.

For the winter, the codiaum is rearranged to a more illuminated window-sill, to the south. As a native of the tropics is very thermophilic, then for the winter he should not lower the temperature of the content below +16.

The best temperature for croton will be 20-22 degrees. In the summer, you can make a bush on a balcony or terrace, not forgetting to cover from the scorching rays of the sun and wind.

Coming from tropical forests, the codiaum needs a familiar humid environment. To bring conditions closer to natural ones, it is necessary to conduct regular spraying of the bush in spring and summer. In winter, spraying can be avoided if the house is cool.

However, in winter there is a risk of dry air due to the inclusion of heating. Therefore, if there are heating systems in the house, the flower should be kept away from them, not forgetting to spray regularly.

Increase the percentage of humidity in the room can be placed next to the plant aquarium or just a jar of water. A wet sphagnum or expanded clay, which can be placed on a tray with a pot, moisturizes the air well.

The best effect will give special moisturizers, which are placed near the plant.

An indispensable condition for flower care is to wipe the leaves with a damp soft sponge every week.

Watering and feeding

Watering the codiaum is carried out by keeping the soil constantly moist. Nevertheless, care must be taken to ensure that water does not stagnate in the root system.

Proper watering of Croton is a very important part of care. Excessive soil moisture will lead to rotting of the root system, and its dryness will entail a fall of the foliage. The solution will be a mandatory thick layer of drainage at the bottom of the pot and regular abundant watering. When watering it is necessary to ensure that the top layer of the earth does not dry out more than one centimeter.

In the cool season, watering is reduced.

Proper care includes regular fertilizing with complex fertilizers for better decoration. The entire growing season is done every two weeks, and during the cold period - once every four weeks.

Fertilizers are applied only after watering, in order to avoid burning the roots.

Codiame Transplant

The first three years to transplant Croton is not necessary. После куст пересаживают по мере необходимости, раз в два-три года. При этом новая емкость должна быть лишь на пару сантиметров больше старой.

Upon reaching the diameter of a new pot of 25 centimeters, further transplants do not produce, but only update the top layer of soil every year.

Planted in a wider and shallow pot. The bottom is always covered with drainage material. Its layer should be quite thick, more than three centimeters.

After transplanting the bush should be watered and determined in a slightly shaded place. Subsequent care is no different from the usual.

Possible problems with croton growing

Insects prefer to avoid poisonous codium juice. However, dry air, poor watering, dust on the leaf plates can provoke the appearance of spider mites or scale insects.

In the initial stages, you can simply wipe the leaves with a damp cloth with soapy water. This is quite enough to get rid of parasites.

If there are too many insects, then it is necessary to apply special chemical means of protection.

Croton sheds foliage

This happens as it grows in a small volume. In this case, the lower leaves fall. This is not a cause for concern. But when the leaf fall begins with a massive drop of foliage, then there may be the following reasons:

  • draft, which is contraindicated flower,
  • dry air in the room
  • improper watering, lack of moisture in the soil,
  • sudden changes in temperature.

Croton leaves dry

If the lower leaf plates at the bush dry - this should not be a cause for concern. Because with the growth of Croton bares the lower part of the trunk.

The drying of the edges of the leaf and the appearance of brown spots on it is evidence that the flower is freezing, it needs more heat.

With dry air in the room near the plant, the tips of the leaf plates can begin to dry.

But if Croton lacks water to nourish the roots, the leaves will dry and crumble.

Croton, also known under the scientific name Codiaeum, belongs to the numerous family of Euphorbia. Its spectacular leaves, like a raincoat covering the stem, are able to decorate any interior and delight all year round with its decorative effect. Amateur flower growers gladly lodge this plant on the window-sills of ordinary apartments and offices, but you cannot call it a frequent guest. Croton has earned the glory of a problem and capricious plant, because care at home is often fraught with problems.

What is croton?

To find out this plant on the store counter can not even be a professional. It is distinguished by dense leathery leaves with well-marked veins. In nature, it is a shrub up to 3 m high, but in room conditions specimens above 1 m can be found extremely rarely. Often the bottom of adult plants is bare, and rejuvenation is required.

The lamina in different varieties can be oval, ovoid, ribbon-like, twisted, or have numerous cuts. Leaf color and leaf pattern can simultaneously be imbued with all the colors of the rainbow, or strictly adhere to the two-color scale.

It is interesting that on the same plant the color of the leaves may differ significantly, since young leaves, when blooming, are often painted in different shades of green and yellow, and as they mature, brighter red and pink tones begin to appear.

Attention! Croton sap is poisonous; therefore, it is better to carry out transplantation and pruning of a plant with gloves, and also to limit access to it for children and animals. Skin contact causes dermatitis and diarrhea and vomiting when consumed.

Croton species and varieties

Scientists have identified 17 Croton species that are found in the wild in India, Southeast Asia, Northern Australia and the Pacific Islands. In home culture is grown mainly codium motley. The lack of species diversity more than compensates for a huge number of varieties differing in leaf color. Many flower growers like croton, plant species and photos are collected in numerous galleries on websites and forums, but it is almost impossible to determine the croton variety from the photo.

Conventionally, all varieties can be divided into 2 groups: large-leaved and small-leaved, among which there are cultivars, most often found on store shelves:

  • Excellent‘. Large-leaved variety with leaves narrowed to the edge. The color of young leaves is green with yellow veins, which then acquire a reddish color.

  • Petra‘. Large green leaves with red or yellow veins.

  • Pictum‘. With small belt-like green leaves covered with yellow spots.

  • Spirale‘. One of the most original cultivars, whose long leaves curl around the central vein.

Interesting! Some types of crotons have found application in medicine and cosmetology, for flavoring liqueurs, and also serve as raw materials for the paint industry.

Watering and humidity

When watering it is important to keep the earth bed wet. The main thing is to stick to the golden mean, not allowing it to stick or dry. Especially dangerous is excess moisture on the background of low temperature. In this case, the roots quickly rot, to which the plant reacts by dropping leaves.

The humidity of the air is also of great importance, especially when the temperature considerably exceeds the optimum one. A warm shower and regular spraying will help to survive even very hot days without losing any decorativeness.

Croton, like any plant placed in a limited pot volume, requires regular fertilization. During the period of active growth, it is recommended every 2 weeks to feed the plant with complex fertilizer. Feeding is best done after watering, while the ground is wet.

Pruning is necessary to give the plant a beautiful decorative shape. If a plant forms only one shoot, it is worth cutting or pinching at a height of 15 cm from the ground level. Then you should shorten or pinch new shoots when reaching a length of 20 cm. Such regular care will allow you to create a beautiful, well leafy shrub. Allowed the formation of plants and at a higher pillar.

The main value of the codium - beautiful leaves. A croton flower is ugly and does not represent decorative value. Therefore, it is better to remove the inflorescences in order not to deplete the plant.

Transplant and soil requirements

Young plants that actively grow leaves are recommended to replant 2 times a year. An adult croton is enough for one transplant. The purchased plant is desirable to immediately transplant to a new substrate.

The soil should contain equal parts of peat, sod, leaf soil and sand, or you can buy ready-mixed soil.

Croton breeding methods at home

The easiest way to get another Croton - reproduction cuttings. It is not only easy to implement, but also allows preserving the varietal qualities of the plant, i.e. the resulting copy will have the same leaf color as the parent plant.

It is best to use apical cuttings for rooting. The cut must be cleaned from the milky eye, treated with activated charcoal or slightly dried, and also treated with a root growth stimulator. After that, the stalk is placed in pots with a light substrate of sand and peat, and after the formation of the roots are planted in a normal substrate.

Interesting! Croton can be propagated and leaf cuttings cut with a piece of bark.

Seed propagation is also possible, albeit more laborious. Only freshly harvested seeds can germinate. Varietal characteristics are not inherited, but young plants can please with a variety of colors and leaf shapes. Seedlings - valuable material for breeding and breeding new varieties.

Tip! Before sowing, immerse the seeds for 30 minutes in warm water (60 ° C), and then leave to germinate in a damp place for a day. Sow the seeds that have swelled during this time.

Common Croton Pests

Codium is poisonous, so few pests risk planting and prefer more edible species. Spider mites, mealybugs and thrips can damage croton, but most often the reason lies in care errors. Only weakened plants in conditions of too dry air and irregular care of the leaves can attract the attention of pests.

Possible care problems

Most often, you can find a complaint that the Croton dry and fall leaves. It is the leaves that are the first to signal a change in the state of the plant and make the owners think about how to care for the Croton.

Periodic drying of leaves can be a natural process, since Each leaf plate is on the plant only for a certain time. However, a strong leaf fall with stalks exposed on them indicates the appearance of pests or may be caused by care errors. To drop the leaves lead:

  • strong drying of the substrate
  • root decay due to waterlogging,
  • dry air
  • sharp temperature drop
  • draft.

Only when the optimal conditions of maintenance are met, the leaf fall will stop and the plant will begin to build up the leaf mass.

It is safe to say that Croton is unjustly called sluggard, and the requirements for conditions of detention are similar to traditional indoor plants. Beauty and decorativeness, regardless of the season, deserve the effort spent on care for the Croton at home.

Flower craton, or codia. Home care

The craton flower, the new name of which is codiaum, has long been familiar to Europeans, but in Russian houses it is still a rare guest. This original ornamental deciduous plant is quite capricious: it does not tolerate the air of an ordinary apartment, apparently therefore it is not a widespread room culture. However, under greenhouse conditions, the craton flower is successfully grown and supplied to flower shops.

Codiaum belongs to the family of Euphorbia. Its height in natural conditions reaches three meters. A craton flower, a photo of which will immediately remind you of which plant in question, came from the Malay Archipelago, where a humid tropical climate reigns.

Depending on the variety, the leathery shiny leaves of the codiaum have orange, yellow or red veins, contrasting with the main green background. Their form is often narrow, oblong, with wavy edges. The leaves are located on short cuttings around the trunk of the plant.

At home, the craton flower develops very slowly, reaching only one meter in height. For normal development, he necessarily needs a place on the sunny side, otherwise he will lose his original color. However, hit of direct rays for codiame is undesirable.

A craton flower does not like drafts and temperature drops, because its leaves become brown and curl when the amount of heat decreases, so it is not recommended to take it to the open air.

In the room where this crop grows, it must be very wet - up to 80%. In the summer months, when it becomes impossible to maintain such a level, a craton flower can be put on a pallet with constantly wet pebbles or placed close to a large aquarium.

In the period from spring to late autumn, the soil in the pot should be kept in a constantly wet state, but without overflows, to avoid root decay. With a decrease in temperature, watering needs to be drastically reduced, although it is also impossible to overdry the plant, since in this case it can lose foliage.

The craton flower is transplanted very carefully, so as not to accidentally damage the root system. At the bottom of the new pot must be laid out a decent layer of drainage for the free flow of excess water.

Immediately after transplantation, you need to water these flowers plentifully. Craton, the care of which requires compliance with certain conditions, practically does not bloom in captivity. However, in natural conditions, he annually produces nondescript white inflorescences.

The most favorable soil for this plant is a mixture of equal parts of leaf, turf, peat and humus soil with sand.

Every spring, the craton flower should be pruned, removing all excess shoots. If the codiaeum stretches upward and does not form side shoots, then the tip must be pinned. Many growers do not know that this beautiful plant can be quite dangerous. The fact is that when pruning a flower, the craton emits poisonous milky juice, which has the property of strongly irritating the skin, therefore, when working with codiaeum, it is better to use gloves or wash hands thoroughly.

It is believed that this plant is able to clean the room from the negative. In addition, affecting the emotional state, the flower calms and promotes a pleasant rest.

Name: Croton, Codiaeum (Codiaeum variegatum var. Pictum)

Family: Euphorbia (Fam. Euphorbiaceae)

Motherland Croton Malaysia and East India belong to the euphorbia family. Croton, cherished by the tropical climate of the Malay Archipelago, Ceylon and southern India, is very widespread.

The large, dense leaves of the croton are very elegant due to their color: reddish, orange, yellowish tones. The plant is very unusual and beautiful, known as the "cloak of Joseph."

Croton varieties are a great many, differing in leaf shape, but all have bright color with yellow veins. The shape of the leaf is laureate, oak and in the form of straps.

When growing there are problems of preserving the lower leaves in winter, therefore there is an opinion that this plant is an annual. But at a constant temperature, the plant will retain all the leaves and will delight the owners with its beauty for many years.

Choice and purchase

It is necessary to choose a plant by the appearance of foliage, the lower leaves should be well developed, should not be sluggish and drooping. When transported in the winter in cold weather, the plant should not be supercooling. Ask the seller to pack a flower in insulation or several layers of newspapers.

Croton and Codiae Care


The more the plant will be under the influence of direct sunlight, the brighter and more alive will be the color of its leaves. Really needs bright sunshine. The main thing is that it is not subject to strong temperature fluctuations. The ideal temperature is 18-20 ° C. Humidity should be as high as possible.


Water generously in summer and moderately, but regularly in winter. It is useful to spray the plant with water, with the exception of cases when direct sunlight falls on wet leaves. Самое практичное решение по обеспечению растения влагой — поместить его на поддон с влажным гравием.


Почва должна быть пористой, богатой гумусом и приготовленной на основе перегноя и торфа.


Цветет растение летом, появляются стройные соцветия, состоящие из небольших и не очень выразительных цветков.


Если вы будете проводить обрезку, воспользуйтесь этим моментом для получения новых экземпляров. The most common form of reproduction of this species is air layering, although it is permissible to use apical stem cuttings, but the temperature should be around 24 ° C and high humidity.


If in the spring (April - May) you see that the plant has grown too much, replace the flower pot. The pot should not be too big. The size of the plant is influenced by the diameter of the pot: if the pot is 9 cm in diameter, the plant will reach 25 cm in height and 13 cm in pots with a diameter of about 50 cm. Bush well and reach 1 m across.

The annual growth of the stem is 20-25 cm. The soil should be porous, rich in humus and prepared on the basis of humus and peat. Try to prevent the land from becoming clogged, and before you take the plant out of a flower pot, be sure to water it. Do not damage the numerous small roots, because they are the basis of the existence of the plant.

Light and temperature conditions

Like all natives of the tropics, room crotons are gentle and capricious, they immediately react to the slightest change in the external environment. In addition, they are very long acclimatized and easily fall into stress due to unusual seasonal fluctuations.

Croton's natural requirement is bright and long daylight, without direct contact of burning rays, and therefore it is necessary to arrange a plant pot in a bright room with large windows facing east or west.

Artificial lighting is used to preserve the best decorative appearance of the leaves of the plant.
