Croton Petra is a gorgeous ornamental foliage plant with stunning leaf colour and variegation. The leaves tend to be glossy and oval in shape with pointed tips. Colours range from pink, through reds, oranges, yellows, light and dark greens - so much colour on one plant! The leaf veins are a paler green and add an interesting variegated dimension. Petra is a very popular Codiaeum and at her best is guaranteed to brighten up a room and lift the spirits.

Please note: These plants will drop leaves if they are unhappy. This might also occur post transit, whilst your plant settles into its new environment.

Horty Hints

Keep it colourful! If you notice the new growth is more on the green side, love your plant with some fertiliser and lots of bright light near a south-facing window.

Wipe leaves with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust. Do not use leaf shine as this will damage the foliage. Cut back to size if they become too tall.

Brrr! If you're seeing excessive leaf drop, it's likely your Croton is too cold. Consider relocating to a warmer, more humid spot like the bathroom or kitchen.
