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.

Watering Needs

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!

Temperature Needs

This plant prefers temperatures between 60-70 degrees. Keep your Croton Petra away from drafts and cold areas like a windowpane in the winter.

Nutrient Needs

Use a general fertilizer in a well-draining pot and do not feed in fall and winter.
