Care tips for Codiaeum Variegatum

Sunlight Requirements

Codiaeum Variegatum thrives in bright, indirect light. In the UAE, position it near windows with filtered sunlight or in well-lit, shaded areas to protect it from direct sun exposure, which can cause leaf burn.

Soil and Potting

Plant your Croton in well-draining soil to ensure adequate root aeration and moisture retention. Ensure that the pot has proper drainage holes to prevent waterlogging.

Watering

Maintain consistently moist but not waterlogged soil. Allow excess water to drain freely.

Temperature and Humidity

Codiaeum Variegatum prefers warm temperatures and moderate humidity. Protect it from cold drafts.

Fertilizing

Feed your Croton with a balanced, water-soluble houseplant fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer) every 4-6 weeks. This encourages healthy growth and vibrant foliage.

Pruning and Maintenance

Pruning is generally minimal for Codiaeum Variegatum. Remove any dead or yellow leaves to maintain a tidy appearance. Regularly inspect your plant for pests and diseases, addressing them promptly to ensure its health.
