Caring for Calypso


Bright indirect light. The brighter the light, the more vibrant the leaf colour

Water & humidity

Water once a week. Allow top layer of soil to dry out between waterings. Calypso is not too phased about humidity, but he likes warm tropical nights - keep him away from cold draughts.


Feed with 1 organic Canola Meal sachet 2-3 times in summer. 


Re-pot to only one pot size up in spring, if necessary. Normal potting soil will do. 

Atrium Top Tip

If Calypso’s leaves drop he’s likely suffering from cold. Place him in a warmer spot. New leaves will be green before they gain colour.

Quirky plant fact

Native to Malaysia and the Pacific, Croton trees reach a height of 6m in the wild. Occasionally they produce white flowers.
