Have a read about this plant below.
All that this plant needs is a proper sized planter that allows it to show off its beautifully unique leaves. Always remember to keep your plant in a pot that has drainage holes for proper watering.
Provide adequate sunlight for 4-6 hours per day. This plant thrives in bright filtered light.
To keep this plant bright and cheery, make sure the soil is thoroughly dry between watering as too much water will cause wilting. To check if your plant is ready to be watered, stick your finger about 1-3” down in the soil and if it's not damp, it's ready!
This plant prefers temperatures between 60-70 degrees. Keep your Croton Petra away from drafts and cold areas like a windowpane in the winter.
Use a general fertilizer in a well-draining pot and do not feed in fall and winter.
