Croton Mammy 3PPP
Croton Mammy plants thrive in temperatures 60 - 80 deg F, but they can tolerate cool weather down to 40 deg F (but not frost) and hot weather up to 100 deg F if they have some shade. Hot sunlight will cause the brillant colors to fade, and lack of sunlight causes more green than other colors. Winter sunshine brings out the burgandy, red, orange, and yellow colors of the leaves. Well-drained soil and misting daily keeps the leaves bright and healthy. The few garden pests that bother croton plants can be deterred with the usual pesticides formulated for houseplants. Croton plants are toxic to humans and pets.
