A colourful Croton and a fabulous Ficus are featured in 6" ceramic pots. These

indoor tropicals are easy to care for and will make a statement in your home.


Water: Tropicals do not need lots of water. Wait until the soil on top 2 inches has completely

dried before watering again.


Sunlight: Tropicals love indirect sunlight. The more light the Croton gets the more colours show

on its leaves. The tropicals can burn if the sun is directly on them. Light through partially

closed blinds is perfect.


Fertilizer: Tropicals benefit from periodic fertilizing. They should be fertilized every 2 to 3 weeks

from spring to summer and 3 to 4 weeks in the winter.


Soil: Tropicals prefer a high acidic, loose well draining soil that is high in organic matter.


Temperature: Tropicals like humid warm locations. They do not do well

under 15°C or in a place that is very drafty.
