Victoria Gold Bell’ is an attractive variegated croton with a unique leaf structure. The leaves are comprised of a small bell-shaped leaf that hangs off the main leaf from a thin thread.
In Additional, Crotons grow best in well-drained soil and in full sun to partial shade. Too much sun will bleach the color out of the leaves and too little will cause the leaves to be more green.
Place your croton where it will receive six to eight hours of bright, unfiltered sunlight each day.
Keep leaves dust-free and shiny by wiping them with a damp cloth. Dry air and soil will cause croton leaves to fall off.
Requiring a minimum of 4 hours of direct sun each day, Croton is a plant that can be difficult to grow and keep healthy. The soil should be evenly moist and the plant protected from drafts or overly warm temperatures. The leaves will drop if the soil is too dry or too wet. These are plants which only survive outdoors where temperatures do not normally drop below 10°C in winter.
