Codiaeum variegatum 'Mammy'

25,99 €

Tax included.


The Croton Mammy, native to Australia, Malaysia and the Pacific Islands, is one of the boldest houseplants around with multi-coloured foliage that grow in spirals in all directions. This Croton reminds us of autumnal leaves and firework displays! If kept in warm, bright conditions it may reward you with flowers.

I am one of the boldest houseplants around with multi-coloured foliage being my stand-out feature. I may reward you with flowers if kept in warm, bright conditions - but who needs flowers when you've got leaves like mine?

Growing pot size: 12cm

Overall plant height including growing pot: 30-35cm

Pets: Keep away from nibble pets

Fact: The oil of the Croton which was once used in herbal medicine as a violent purgative, is extracted from its seeds.

Care Instructions

Light

I like really bright indirect light, and preferably 4-5 hours of sunlight each day, otherwise my colours will fade.

Water

Keep me moist but not sitting in water. You can mist me often.

Temperature

I like a warm, humid environment.

Feeding

Feed me with a low-nitrogen, slow-release fertilizer once in early spring and once again in summer.

Toxicity

I can make you sick if you eat me so keep out of reach from kids and pets.

Grooming

You will need to clean my leaves often so that my colors can be appreciated.

Care

When I get stressed I lose my leaves - if you've just brought me home, wait a few weeks to let me adjust. If I continue to lose my leaves, check that the air around me is not too dry and that I'm getting enough light.
