Native to Indonesia, the Croton Gold Dust or Sun Spot Plant offers a unique variegation pattern with yellow speckles around the leaves that multiply if given enough light. However, you will want to avoid direct, midday sun to prevent leaf burn.
This plant also needs a humid environment for ideal growing conditions. You can partially simulate humidity in your home by spritzing the leaves with warm water a couple of times per month.
Sun Requirements: Medium to Bright, indirect light (within 6 feet of an east or west-facing window or 6 feet from a south or southwest-facing window). Can survive in lower lighting.
Water Requirements: Water moderately 1 time per week during summer. Water 2 times per month in winter. Make sure soil is dry before watering. Soil moisture meter recommended.
Plant Growth: Can grow 1-3 inches per year if given the right conditions. Will reach about 2 feet in height.
