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.

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.
You can still order, but due to cold weather, we have delayed shipping to the areas shaded on the map below. We want your new plant to thrive right out of the box, so we will wait on shipping your order until the weather is ideal. This includes anyone in
