My Croton Petra
Ok I just purchased one. I read how to water. My question are my Plant is straight leaves. Does it need extra light. Also can I place near a light bulb.

Luckily, Petras are the variety of croton best suited to growing indoors. It may eventually fade to mostly green, but it should be happy just receiving ambient indoor light. I have one that's lived happily for years next to a regular table lamp that's only on for a few hours every evening.
