Sun: Direct - Indirect

Place your Petra Croton in a location with bright, indirect sunlight. Direct sun can scorch its leaves, so it's best to avoid placing it in direct sunlight.

Light: Medium - Bright

Provide your Petra Croton with bright, indirect light for most of the day. It can tolerate some lower light conditions, but it will thrive best in bright, indirect light.

Water: When top quarter dry

Water your Petra Croton when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot. Ensure proper drainage in the pot to prevent waterlogging.

Humidity: Any

Petra Crotons prefer high humidity levels. You can increase humidity around the plant by misting its leaves regularly or placing a tray filled with water and pebbles beneath the pot. Avoid placing it near drafts or air vents, as dry air can cause its leaves to dry out.

Pet Friendly: Caution

Petra Croton is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.

Pro Tip

To enhance the vibrancy of your Petra Croton's foliage, gently wipe its leaves with a damp cloth periodically. This removes dust and allows the plant to absorb more light, promoting healthier growth and more vibrant colors.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!

To prevent both under-watering and overwatering, use a well-draining potting mix and allow excess water to escape. Always check the soil moisture before adding more water to keep your plants thriving.
