Croton Petra


Croton Petra, also known as Codiaeum variegatum 'Petra', is a popular cultivar of the Croton plant. This tropical plant is native to Southeast Asia and is prized for its brightly colored foliage. The leaves of the Croton Petra are leathery and stiff, with a glossy texture and distinctive patterns of red, yellow, and green. The colors of the leaves can become more intense with exposure to bright sunlight. Croton Petra plants can grow up to 3-6 feet tall and 2-3 feet wide, but can be pruned to maintain a smaller size. They prefer well-draining soil and need regular watering to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Croton Petra is a popular indoor plant, adding a vibrant pop of color to any space. However, it is toxic to pets and humans if ingested, so care should be taken to keep it out of reach of children and pets.
