Plants look after us if we look after them

Product information

This plant, with its beautiful veins, arresting leaves and distinguishing colours, is difficult to miss. The Codiaeum is a lot of things, but dull is not one of them. The plants natural habitat is in Indonesia, Polynesia, Malaysia, Pakistan and India, where it is often measured in meters as a shrub. The plant will thrive in your living room provided it has plenty of light; the Codiaeum will drain of its beautiful colours if left in the dark. Our grower’s advice (Jogrow): “The plant is quite thirsty in spring and summer, so make sure you water it regularly.”
