Your Gold Dust Croton Care Guide

To keep your Gold Dust Croton flourishing, here's all you need to know:

  • Sunlight: This plant adores the sun's rays. Place it where it can enjoy plenty of light, including direct morning sunlight on a balcony. More light means more of those characteristic golden sparkles on its leaves. Watch as new leaves emerge green and gradually sprinkle on their gold dust as they mature.
  • Watering: Gold Dust Crotons harmonise well with self-watering pots, which help maintain the perfect moisture balance. Ensure the potting mix stays evenly moist but not waterlogged.
  • Outdoor Rotation: For indoor plants away from windows, incorporate a unique rotation by allowing them to bask outdoors for at least two weeks in a cycle. This ensures they get the light they crave and maintain their vibrant colours.
