Croton 'Petra' - Plant

Codiaeum variegatum 'Petra'
Croton 'Petra'

Glossy and full of colour

Indoor plant colours boring? Croton 'Mrs. Iceton' proves the absolute opposite! Its big, colourful and leathery foliage seems to radiate a colourful smile at you. The Codiaeum Variegatum 'Mrs. Iceton' prefers a light spot without direct sunlight. The sap in the leaves of this friendly apparition is slightly toxic. You’d never have thought so at first glance, right? But fortunately, with normal use you never have to worry about this Croton. Just be careful with children and pets.

    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.
