a.k.a. Croton Petra, Codiaeum Variegatum

The Croton is an easy-to-grow houseplant known for its variegated foliage covered in green, scarlet, orange, and yellow splotches. He loves lots of light (and can even thrive outside in the summer) and is quite resistant to drying out and to pests in general. Place the croton in a sunny location such as an eastern, southern, or western window. If a Croton is getting too little light, its newer leaves will be less colorful. Some people may find this plant ‘fussy’ as it has a tendency to go into shock and drop some or all of its leaves when it is moved to a new location. However, with proper care and enough light, the Croton’s leaves will regrow quickly.

frequently asked questions

I'd like to give some plants as a gift. How can I do that?

During the checkout you can write a message for your recipient in the 'special notes' field. We will include a handwritten card with your message and place it in the box in a green envelope. There are never any receipts in the boxes as we do everything digitally.

Keep in mind that we will send confirmation and tracking emails to the email you enter during checkout. If you want the gift to be a surprise enter your own email and let your friend know when the package will be delivered.

If you are not sure what to get your friend you can also buy them a gift card and let them choose.

How do I know when it's time to water my plant?

We have care instructions for every plant - both short and more detailed for beginner plant parents. While we do give an indication how often you should water each plant, the absolute best way to make sure your plants stay healthy is to check the soil.

Stick a finger in the soil up to the knuckle, does the soil feel dry? Is there almost nothing sticking to your finger? Then it's likely time to water. Some plants can tolerate getting dry while some will get brown crispy edges if the soil gets to dry between waterings. Know your plants and always double check the soil. Don't water on a schedule.

How can I redeem my loyalty points for a reward?

Click on the rewards button in the bottom right corner with the gift icon and then click 'Redeem Points' and choose the reward. You will recieve via email a personalized coupon code that you must use with your next order in order to recieve the discount or the free goodies.

Do I need to repot the plant after I receive it?

Travelling can be stressful for the plant especially since it's moving from perfect greenhouse conditions to a new environment. Repotting may cause extra stress since the roots would then also need to adjust to a new space. It's better to give your plant some time to adjust to its new home (about 1-2 months) before repotting it. Only repot if the roots are really sticking out of the bottom of the pot.
