6″ Croton Petra


Out of stock

Croton plants are known for their bright and vibrant foliage, covered in green, scarlet, orange, and yellow splotches. They do not like to be moved, so don’t be alarmed if they shed a few leaves once they come home. Also known as rushfoil, Joseph’s coat, and variegated laurel, this slow-growing evergreen perennial is native to Australia and Southeast Asia.

Water: Crotons prefer their soil to stay consistently moist. Mist regularly if humidity in your home is low.

Sunlight: Bright light. The more bright sunlight a Croton receives, the more colourful their foliage. If they are in a spot with less sunlight, new leaves will emerge with more green.

Placement: Place croton in a sunny location such as an eastern, southern, or western window. Their love for humidity makes a bathroom or kitchen a great place for these plants.  

Food: Less is more. Fertilize with half-strength fertilizer once in spring and summer.

Pets: Moderately toxic. Ingestion may cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting.
