Vibrant Color Grows Indoors

Why Croton Petra Plants?

Croton Petras are unique house plants that set the bar high: Multiple vivid colors in their foliage, from vibrant yellows and greens to red and purple, impress. The leaves have brighter color veins with contrasting, darker greens in the middle, creating a wow-worthy show of contrasting hues.

Plus, Croton Petras are compact container plants and will thrive anywhere indoors. Keep them on the kitchen table for a showy centerpiece or in the office to liven up a dull room. They can be kept in smaller or larger containers - either way, they thrive effortlessly.

Why is Better

Basically, this tropical plant takes the phrase low-maintenance to a whole new level. Heat and drought tolerance meets pest and disease resistance for hassle-free vibes.

But the best part is that we've planted, grown and shipped our Croton Petras with care. Because we've put in the hard work at our nursery, you get healthier roots and a head start on easy long-term growth.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: During the winter months, the Croton Petra enjoys bright light. As for spring and summer, it does well with indirect light and a bit of dappled shade. However, the Croton prefers warm temperatures, so be sure to keep it away from drafty areas.

When you're repotting or planting your Petra Plant, select a container that's twice the width of the shipped container and one that has drainage holes.

2. Watering: Water your Petra Plant lightly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Our rule of thumb: Put your finger in the soil to check its level of moisture. There is no need to water your Croton Petra until you have a full inch of dryness starting from the top of the soil.

Shipping Details

Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
