A bright burst of colour on deep green leaves, the Golden Petra is a popular indoor plant as easy to care for as it is to love. Commonly known as the Croton Petra or botanically as codieaum variegatum, this plant is coveted for the auburn, scarlet, and lemon colored veins that mark its bright, bushy foliage.
Place Crotons in a sunny location, like an east, south or west window. Keep the soil evenly moist, but let dry out between watering. If humidity is low, mist around the leaves with water once a week or keep a tray of wet gravel near the plant.
