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.

I love my Croton

My croton arrived nicely packed for shipping, It has really grown since I potted it. I love all the colors that the leaves have. It seems to be doing really well so I bought another one. It's super low maintenance, just a bit of water, but I do steam it when I take a warm shower. It seems to really like it.


Maturing beautifully

Gorgeous tree. use cinnamon powder to **** gnats;sprinkle on soil and leaves. Water when top soil is,dry, use a water soluble fertilizer high in monopotassium, I buy from amazon. I keep it on an east side spot by Corridor entrance. In the Summer I keep it out in the yard.


Not easy as advertised

Came loaded with those little annoying soil gnats. Could never get completely rid of them. Watched that plant do a slow death, slowly losing all the leaves...


We are so sorry to hear this! We're going to reach out to you and offer some options for a replacement.

Croton 'Petra'

Most helpful care information. We are enjoying our new Croton 'Petra'.

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.
