Croton 'Gold Dust'
This easy care flowering plant loves bright, indirect light but can tolerate low light environments. When it comes to watering, allow the top inch of soil to partially dry out between waterings. You’ll want to avoid overwatering, so it’s best to put your plant in a pot with drainage holes. As for the soil, light, loose medium (can be a combination of an orchid mix, peat, and perlite) is great along with placing your plant in a high humidity area. Be careful, they are toxic to humans and pets.
