Multicolored Croton Houseplants For Your House
There is nothing like having luscious houseplants at home, that soothe your senses, and make for an inviting ambiance. There are so many choices when it come to houseplants. One of the most popular is croton houseplants. With its colorful, glossy and multicolored tropical foliage, a croton plant is among the popular potted houseplants. Croton houseplants are tropical, evergreen plants belonging to the Euphrobiaceae or Spurgefamily. They are notable for their bright, multicolored foliage, which is why the Croton plant is also known as Joseph’s Coat. The foliage consists of stiff, waxy and alternately placed leaves that can be of a variety of shapes, oval, lance-like, lobed or linear, and of a mix of various shades of green, yellow, orange, white, red, pink, crimson, purple and black; the same plant can have different kinds of leaves and colors. The Croton plant colors are caused by the presence of a chemical called anthocyanin in the leaves, and the colors are liable to brighten or fade according to the amount of sunlight the plant receives.
Under favorable conditions, the Croton plant can attain heights of 10 feet (3.05 m) or more, and produce tiny yellow flowers. It usually helps to prune the plant from time to time to encourage a heavy foliage growth. The pruned parts, especially the green wood and leaf bud cuttings, can be used to propagate new Croton plants. It is important to know that Crotons fall in the category of poisonous houseplants, and special care should be taken if there are young children or pets in the house.
