#croton #croton-petra Had a gift card for Homesense so I picked up this basket planter for one of my plants. Trying the croton but since they do not like to be moved , I will have to keep an eye on it. 😄

Their such a pretty plant. I love the colors in the foliage but they are a bit picky. Like you said, especially when u move them. Yours looks great!!😊💕

Thanks so much everyone. Hope it survives the move. If not it will return to its original spot. 🤞🤞 @charlotte @terrimclaughlin @richard.spicer.7906 @KOutdoors

Love those dark red❤️❤️❤️ In my case, it took several weeks for me to find the best spot for healthy colouring of leaves. First, it was too bright, then next it was too dark. Now found the best spot where the plant gets morning sun for only a few hours.

Thanks Katy. Love the colours on this one. I have managed to get some new leaves on my original croton but the are all green with yellow spots. I thought it was a goner but I repotted it and put it under a growlight. It seems happy now. 🤞🤞🤞 @gjones

Thanks Karen. I agree. It is in a very small growers pot so I will repot it very soon. Then it should spread out a little. 😄 @KOutdoors

Thanks very much. Could not resist it. My other croton I have had for a few years only has 3 small leaves left. Have been wanting a new one for a while. 😍 @cheriej
