Questions & Answers

What type of dirt or soil should the croton Petra plant be repotted in

Asked by: Worried
Hello! The Croton Petra should be repotted with a good quality potting soil formulated for foliage or house plants. This type of potting media will have good moisture holding capacity and also allow for adequate aeration and drainage to promote optimal root conditions and growth. Thank you for your inquiry!

Why are the leaves drupping and falling off what care does this plant require?

I repotted this plant with dirt from my back yard mixed with potting soil. Soon after the plant starts drupping and shedding leaves. How can revive it I think it's dying.
Asked by: Worried
Hello! The Croton Petra leaves are drooping and falling off the plant likely due to lack of aeration and drainage in the soil used in repotting. When repotting Croton use a good quality potting soil only that’s formulated for foliage or houseplants for these. Native soil from the back yard can promote disease development and may have soil born disease inoculum present. Consider gingerly repotting into a good quality soil. The plant will hopefully recuperate afterwards. Maintain moderate soil moisture after repotting and avoid overly wet or soggy conditions and any standing water at the base of the container. The Croton should be in a bright location with filtered light or near a window with an east or west exposure that receives sun early or late for 3 to 4 hours daily. Hopefully that’s helpful. Thank You for your inquiry!

Croton Petra in 8-3/4 in. Pot is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Ideal for the Weekend Gardener Croton's might be a popular choice for outdoor gardens in Hawaii or Florida, but maybe not everywhere else. The plant is VERY sensitive to temperatures over 90F and will require daily watering to stay hydrated and cool during those long summer days (my Croton's take about a gallon each - every day). They seem to like direct sunlight, loads of water and a good All Purpose Plant Food (liquid) every 14 days or so. All said however, the Croton's great color is hard to duplicate elsewhere...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great houseplant I have a front office space that has several windows. I keep my houseplants in this room due to the ample amount of light. This plant has struggled terribly. Not only are the leaves turning brown and wilting at an alarming rate, the healthier green leaves are falling off. I have followed the watering instructions that were included- letting it get a bit dry to the touch before watering. No help on the site, and the question posted has received no response from Home Depot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This plant is appealing as a patio setting. I would like to know how to care for this kind of plant. I buy them every year and every year the leaves began to fall not long after I've had them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great, but.... The pot arrived cracked with soil falling out. It would help to send a replacement so I would not need to buy a new flower pot.
