A technicoloured plant that's sure to dazzle

Native to Australia, Indonesia and Malaysia, Croton plants offer up fiery foliage filled with truly spectacular colour. There is a huge amount of variation in the shape and colours of foliage and as houseplants, they are an easy way to add character to any room. They hold the common name of Joseph's Coat after the amazing technicoloured Dreamcoat! This variety has skinny leaves of a speckled yellow and green mixture that burst out like a fountain. Though Crotons have a reputation for being fussy plants that are tricky to care for, setting up correctly from the start can allow them to mature into a plant that's very hardy and difficult to go wrong with. They'll be happiest in bright direct light to mimic their native Oceanic habitat.

About your plant

The plant pictured to the right is fresh from its nursery and indicates what you are going to receive. Your plant will arrive in a standard pot (any planters displayed are for illustrative purposes only, so will not be included with your order). Delivering directly to your door, our trusted tropical nursery provides optimal growing conditions for each plant, so you can rest assured that they will arrive in good condition.

Packaging


Plant Theory has sustainability at its heart. This means that every plant will be delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. The intuitive box design is plastic free and will keep your plant safe on their journey to your home.

All Plants Supplied In Nursery Pot

Please note, all of our house plants arrive in a nursery pot as standard. You can find a more permanent home for your plant in our wide range of indoor plant pots.

How your order will arrive
Your plant will be happy in a well-lit location. With most houseplants, it is best to avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch their leaves. We believe that a little way back from a window in a bright room is optimum.

The foliage of your plant may become a little dusty, so just wipe them down with a damp cloth occasionally (try not to come into direct contact with the plant).
