propagate the Croton Petra

Follow these simple steps to propagate a piece of your Croton Petra:

  • Select a section that is at least three inches long has a few leaves and cut the stem with a clean blade right above a node. A node is a bump in the stem where leaves or branches shoot out.

  • Fill a small container with a lightweight potting mixture (like sphagnum moss) and put the cutting inside. Lightly mist the potting soil and cover with plastic wrap to create humidity, this mimics a tropical or greenhouse atmosphere. It should stay moist for several weeks, but you can always uncover the container and check to make sure.

  • Place the cutting in indirect sunlight, bright sunlight can burn your cutting, and wait. When you see a few roots have grown your new Croton Petra is ready to be potted!

grow and repot the Croton Petra

  • Growing – Croton Petras are slow growers and will grow even slower in low light conditions. During spring or summer, use a diluted fertilizer just once or twice a month to give your plant a vitamin boost.

  • Repotting – Croton Petras only need to be repotted every few years to encourage new growth and refresh their soil with nutrients. If you’d like your plant to grow larger, find a new grow pot that is 2” larger than its current pot. If you’re happy with the size of your plant you can simply swap out the soil to give it the nutrients that it needs.

    If you don’t have a yard to repot in you can spread out newspaper on the floor to catch any stray dirt. To repot simply remove the plant from its current pot and get off as much of the old soil as possible so that you have clean roots. Try to be gentle throughout this process as Croton Petras are quite sensitive. Add a layer of fresh soil at the bottom of the new pot and place the plant in the center of the and cover with more soil. Press down firmly on the top layer of soil to make sure that your plant is secure and water thoroughly. Place the plant in an area with plenty of bright light. Your Croton Petra will take 2-4 weeks to settle from the shock and adjust to its new home, don’t worry too much if you see it drop a few leaves while it adjusts.
