Mold on a Croton Petra could be due to excessive moisture or poor ventilation. Ensure the soil is well-draining, and the plant isn't sitting in water. Consider increasing air circulation and avoiding overwatering. If the issue persists, check for pests or consider repotting with fresh soil.
For a natural remedy, sprinkling a a layer of ground cinnamon on top. The cinnamon is an anti fugal and it doesnโ€™t bother the plant
