2018 purchase of this same type of plants were healthier and bigger, but I think will work out ok . I have 3 each in 4 planters around my pool with sedum ground cover. I like the colors and insect resistant.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: The Croton Mammy requires full sun from an East or West-facing window. If this is not possible, a grow light will be necessary to sustain its vibrant colors. It shouldn’t be placed in an area where temperatures dip below 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
For potted plants, make sure you have an adequate draining system. Cut more holes in the bottom of your pot to ensure the water runs through completely, or purchase a pot with drainage holes. Also ensure that the new pot is one and a half to two times the width of the Croton's shipped container.
2. Watering: Your plant’s soil should be dry an inch down from the top of the soil before watering. Generally, we recommend watering about once weekly, but if you're not sure, simply check your surrounding soil for dryness.
