Petra Croton (Codiaeum variegatum)
The 4-inch Petra Croton (Codiaeum variegatum) is a bright houseplant showing a variety of colors including yellow, green, red and near-black with speckles or veins in contrasting colors. If you have ever traveled to a tropical destination, you have likely seen the Petra Croton growing as a large shrub as it thrives in warm, humid environments. While the Petra Croton flowers in pendant-style clusters of tiny yellow blossoms, it is infrequent.
Croton plants thrive in bright, indirect sunlight with soil that drains thoroughly in temperatures between 60-75 degrees. Higher temperatures may cause your croton to wilt a bit.
This bright multicolored tropical houseplant will invite questions from everyone who sees it in your home or office.
Sold in the 4-inch grower's original container.
