Croton 'Batik', also known as Codiaeum variegatum 'Batik', is a vibrant evergreen shrub known for its colourful, glossy foliage. Each leaf is a piece of art, showcasing a riot of colours, including green, yellow, orange, and red. The leaves are pointed and have a leathery texture, with the variegation creating a unique, batik-like pattern - hence the name. This Croton variety adds a tropical splash of colour to any indoor setting.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Care Guide

How to take care of Croton Batik

They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.

They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

Allow the top quarter of the soil to dry before watering again. This usually takes about 3 - 4 days in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.

Welcome to the world of the Croton Batik, a dazzling houseplant that exemplifies the vibrancy of life and the power of individuality.

The Croton Batik, or Codiaeum variegatum 'Batik', is a spectacle of bold colours and striking variegations. Its leaves, decked out in shades of green, red, orange, and yellow, evoke images of an artist's palette. These vibrant colours are not merely for show – they speak to the Croton Batik's undaunted individuality and the beauty that can come from embracing our uniqueness.

This plant thrives under bright, indirect light, a reminder of how we, too, can grow and shine in the right environment. The more light it receives, the more its colours can flourish, showing us how nurturing conditions can lead to more vibrant and meaningful lives.

When it comes to watering, the Croton Batik prefers a well-drained soil that is allowed to dry out slightly between waterings. This preference speaks to the plant's lesson of balance, reminding us that finding the right equilibrium in life can lead to better growth and resilience.

As the Croton Batik matures, its stunning display of colours can become even more vibrant, mirroring our own potential to become brighter and more colourful as we grow and mature in life.

Invite the Croton Batik into your living space. It’s not just a plant; it's a living embodiment of individuality, vibrancy, and the importance of finding balance in life. Let its daring display of colour inspire you to celebrate your own uniqueness and the vibrant palette of your life.
