Croton 🍁 such a fascinating plant. I can stare at those leaves for a long time.. This is not an easy plant or a beginner houseplant. It can be tough to meet all his needs, especially in the climate where I live (the Netherlands). It likes a lot of light, but not too direct all the time and humid conditions but not too wet. It sheds leaves when it's not happy so I always adjust when this happens. A little leaf shedding is normal but when the ground is covered all the time and you see not much new growth you need to change care asap.
