Product Description

Petra Croton is loved for its bright, happy colors—deep green leaves with variegated, multicolored veins of bright orange, red and yellow. It fills up a space nicely, reaching heights of 6-8 feet. It can be topped off in the spring if you need it to remain a shorter height. It's happy in a humid environment with an occasional misting of its leaves and watering when the soil begins to dry out. Take care to find it a warm spot in the winter and be careful moving it. Petra Croton does not like to be moved and will drop its leaves if it experiences too much motion. Not to worry, though. With continued proper care, it will bounce back and begin to leaf out again. As Petra Croton grows, it helps to purify the air in your home, too.
