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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Not as newbie friendly as expected
I bought this plant because it was supposed to be good in an area with moderate to little sunlight. The plant wasn’t doing so well after two weeks and it started dropping leaves. I’ve placed it by a west facing window and it seems to be getting new growth. Aside from that, it’s beautiful. The leaves are rather ornate with the red and green stretching through them.
It sounds like your plant may have been going through some stress from the transit which is normal. We're so glad to hear it's doing much better now!

Nice with minimal damage by shipping
My overall view from purchasing, shipping to delivery was a very good experience. The purchasing issue I had was with myself, weather to get 4 or 5 plants. Shipping was with in 1 to 2 days and delivery was on time. The plants arrived very well package, with no damage to the plants.
Happy with this plant!
The plant seems to be doing well! Much better condition than a couple others I bought at the same time!
