Croton trees can reach a height of about 6 metres (20 feet), though houseplants are significantly smaller. I am evergreen with brilliantly coloured, glossy, leathery leaves.

The tropical Croton houseplants are perfect to brighten up your space. Exotic beauties that are easy to look after and work perfectly potted in our signature Little Botanical ceramic pots.

Please note: the colour of the Croton do very much vary in colour. We feel these are as beautiful as each other.

Other names: Codiaeum variegatum


Only water when the top of the soil is dry to the touch, but ensure it gets a good drink once it is watered. If you’re worried you’ve overwatered your Croton, check the ceramic for any excess water and tip it away.

Crotons love a sunny spot but we would suggest avoiding direct bright sunlight in Summer months as this will scorch the leaves. Don’t forget to keep him out of draughts too and away from radiators.

Read our plant care guide, to help keep your Croton looking fresh.

  • What an attractive, colourful plant with a mix of red and green glossy leaves, the black and gold pot compliments it perfectly. The photos don’t do it justice.

  • So happy I bought this plant. The blend of colours yellow-orange looks amazing. The black and gold pot is clean and crisp, looks better than the pictures. Amazing delivery time and packaging. Can’t wait for the out of stock to come back and I’ll be buying more. Highly recommended

  • Ordered this guy for a friend who has been really supportive during lockdown and just moved out to their first home. Arrived a day earlier than estimated and they loved it! Such a great small company, lovely products at reasonable prices and fast delivery which is perfect for a gift. Would definitely recommend!

  • The contrast of the colourful croton against the black and gold pot is just beautiful. I feel like this plant is so underrated and can't believe they're not a more popular houseplant! I've had my little croton for 2 weeks now and it has already put out a new leaf. It's sitting in a South West facing windowsill in my kitchen and is happy there. I make sure if the sun is very hot to pull it out of the direct rays until the sun starts setting and I mist it most days but other than that, I find this plant easy to look after and BEAUTIFUL to look at. Very pleased!

  • I ordered four houseplants to bring some life to my home office during lockdown - I am absolutely delighted with each one, they were so carefully packed and arrived with moist soil. They make a wonderful display - thank you so much!

  • Beautiful little darlings! Got two, they add a lovely splash of colour to the living room. Great for south side windowsill, they seem to thrive in direct sunlight.
