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.

love the petra, to bad you sent me a golden snake, instead.
We're so sorry that you received the incorrect plant! It looks like our customer care representative has been able to fix your order but if we can do anything else to help, please let us know!
We ordered three plants as a Christmas gift for someone. They are amazing! The plants are very healthy.
Great experience. Plant came well wrapped and in excellent condition. The next day it lost about half its leaves but now bouncing back nicely.
I have a very good experience with Fast Growing Trees they are one of the greatest companies I’ve ever dealt with they stand behind their products, and are proud to make each customer happy.
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.
