Croton 'Petra' XL

Codiaeum variegatum 'Petra' XL
Subtle colour gradients
From a distance, this plant looks purple with green... Up close, it looks like an entire colour palette! The veins on the leaf are a lovely contrast. This large houseplant has yellow, orange, pink and purple, among other colours. We are on the lookout! The plant needs high humidity. Water the plant weekly. Water more often if the soil is dry to the touch. Spray the leaves at least once per week. This prevents the leaf edges from drying out. The Croton does like light, but not strong, midday sun. The plant loves morning and evening sun. The Codiaeum brightens up your living room!

How to plant the Croton in a pot?
This houseplant is delivered in a standard growers pot. It’s best for the growth of the Croton to plant it in a decorative planter. Select a pot that is at least 20 percent larger than the growers pot.

Cover the bottom of the decorative planter with a layer of potting soil. Does the decorative pot have a hole? Then start with a layer of hydro grains, so the water can drain away. The Croton should be 1 to 2 cm below the rim. Remove the growers pot and place the plant in the middle of the decorative pot. Fill the pot with fresh potting soil and press it down slightly.

How do I take care of Crotons?
For best growth, water the Croton weekly. Dissolve a little green plant fertiliser in the irrigation water every second week. In summer, it may be necessary to water twice a week, only when the soil feels dry.

Good air humidity of 60 to 70 percent is also important. Otherwise, the leaf edges may dry out. When the air is dry, spray the leaves once or twice a day. The Croton enjoys a light spot with morning or evening sun.
