Did You Know

All the plant gossip, through the grapevine. Pun intended

Plants growing in containers need more fertilizing than those in the ground. The more you water, the more quickly you flush the nutrients out of the soil.

Plant Essentials

Fertilizer/ feed for the plant:The Croton Petra plant needs humus-rich soil to grow. Feed the plant once a week using 3-1-2 liquid fertiliser. If you find that despite regular feeding, the plant is malnourished, increase the amount of fertiliser but keep a close watch since he does not like to be overfed and will tell you as much through dull leaves.
Repotting : For the first 3 years, repot the Croton Petra once a year, and after that only repot when the roots have outgrown the pot. Use a pot that is 2 inches wider than the current pot while repotting and use fresh humus-rich soil.
Propogation : The best and most efficient way to propagate the Croton Petra is through stem cuttings. Another method is to pot the ‘sports’, or shoots that grow independently, in separate pots.

Common Problems

1. Are Croton Petra Plants poisonous to dogs?
On ingesting the sap of a Croton Petra plant, your pet could show signs of mild irritation, and in some cases, vomiting and/or diarrhoea.
2. How big do Croton plants get?
Croton Petras are slow growers and can grow up to 5 to 6 feet in height at maturity with an equal spread.
3. How do I get Croton Petra to become bushy?
Crotons need to be kept in optimal conditions with indirect bright sunlight and humidity. They need to be watered only when you find that the soil is dry in the top inch. If despite this you find that the plant is getting leggy, then prune it back to promote new branching and growth.

Style and Decor

Light Requirements :The Croton Petra is slightly demanding and will only be happy under indirect bright sunlight – it will burn away in direct sunlight and grow sad and dull in medium to low light.
Locations :Area next to a window or balcony or verandas and porches with access to bright indirect sunlight are the best places for a Croton Petra.
Styling/decor tip :Croton Petra is perfect for homes with a warmer colour palette, essentially an Indian decor. He adds to the warmth of ambience created by rich, earthy tones and works well with a sleek mid-century decor too.
