Growing Croton?

Category House Plants
Crotons are a popular group of houseplants that can also be grown outdoors in warm humid climates such as Florida. Depending on the variety you purchase, the light requirements vary from high to medium. A northern exposure and temperatures below 60F are not well tolerated by this plant. The more colorful the foliage the more light required. These plants benefit from regular misting or being placed on a pebble tray.

I bought a croton few days ago which looked perfectly healthy. After awhile I began to notice it has a few leaves that are crispy at the tips and have begun to look yellowish. Please advise.

According to SFGate, your plant needs bright light, high humidity and year-round warmth. Place it in front of a sunny south or west-facing window where it will get abundant direct sunlight.

Your plant needs to get used to its new environment. It is not uncommon to show signs of stress. Follow the instructions that came with the plant.

There is no way to tell what conditions your plant was previously growing in so it will need to adjust.
