Codiaeum variegatum (Croton) Petra
Variegated croton is one of the true kings of the house with his stunning glossy oval-shaped leaves of all colours! And like a true king he is demanding and sometimes hard to please, but when happy - you will know he was totally worth the efforts - he will bring total joy and brighten up any room!
We have two species of slightly different shape and color - Mrs Iceton and Petra. Choose the one you love more, or pick both!
It comes in a 8.5 cm pot and is approx 25 cm tall
Light: High. Definitely needs the brightest spot in your house - a couple of hours of direct sunlight is a must! It will tolerate a bit of shade, but the more light you have - the better the reward in a shape of stunning leaves colors.
Min light - 400 FC, Good Growth - 800 FC
Water: High. He needs his soil to be moist all the time (and it's going to be his definition of moist). If it's too wet or too dry - he will let you know by dropping his leaves. Experiment, experiment, experiment. Loves his water to be warm too. We told you, he's a king!
Pets: Toxic to cats and dogs.
