Infuse your home with subtle touches of vibrant colour courtesy of Croton 'Petra,' a splendid variegated plant hailing from the lively Croton family.
Its exquisite leaves take on an oval shape with pointed ends, showcasing a kaleidoscope of veins spanning from deep oranges and rich maroons to zesty lemons and sunny yellows!
This remarkable foliage contributes to an enchanting visual allure without the apprehension of clashing hues.
Provide at least 4 hours of indirect sunlight per day to maintain vibrant leaf variegation. Avoid excessive light exposure, as it can scorch the leaves.
Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil has dried out, ensuring proper drainage.
Maintain temperatures between 16°C and 27°C. Protect the plant from cold drafts and temperatures below 10°C.
Fertilise during the growing season only, using a balanced liquid or slow-release fertilizer once every two weeks.
Remove damaged or discolored leaves and prune to maintain the desired size and shape.
Native to Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Southeast Asia, and Southern India.
When fully grown, it can reach a height of up to 1.2 meters, making it a striking addition to your home, specially beautiful in living rooms, entrances, and offices.
