How To Care

Croton Petras thrive in full to part sun. Indoors, plant your Croton near a sunny window or in a sun room. Crotons are drought tolerant once established. Water deeply once or twice weekly for the first 3 months. After establishment, water as needed. Whether indoors or out water your Croton Petra when the soil is beginning to dry out. You can test this by putting your finger about 1 inch in the soil. If it is dry to the touch go ahead and water. Add our balanced, slow release fertilizer when planting, in early spring, and late summer for best results. When grown in containers, fertilizer 3 or 4 times per year.
