Plant Features

The Croton Petra is a vibrant and colorful houseplant, known for its striking foliage. The leaves are broad and glossy, featuring a spectacular array of colors including green, yellow, red, and orange. This plant's vivid coloration makes it a popular choice for adding a tropical flair to indoor spaces. Crotons are known for being somewhat finicky in terms of care, but with the right conditions, they can be a stunning addition to any home or office. 

Please note: if consumed in large quantities, this plant can cause abdominal discomfort, vomiting, diarrhea, and other like symptoms. Additionally, the plant puts off a sap that can both stain and cause skin irritation.

For troubleshooting, sudden changes in light, temperature, or watering can cause leaf drop. Try to maintain consistent conditions. Insufficient light can cause the leaves to lose their vibrant colors. Ensure the plant is placed in a location with bright, indirect sunlight. Brown leaf tips can be a sign of low humidity or over-fertilization. Increase humidity around the plant and fertilize sparingly. Crotons can attract pests like spider mites and mealybugs. Regularly check for pests and treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil if necessary.

Extremely Beautiful

This plant is even more beautiful that I anticipated. I love the variegation and big leaves larger than my hand. Would love another.
