Originally from the Pacific Islands, in South India to Malaysia, in Europe are grown in pots.
Codiaeum variegatum looks shrubs, in the natural environment and grow to 3.5 m apartment can reach 1 m. grows about 25 cm per year. The leaves are arranged in spiral on the stem, simple, lobate edge, wave, persistent, yellow, purple or red. Small green flowers.
Grow in bright, but not in full sun. The boat is good to be kept on the wet gravel. To be constant ambient temperature between 16-29 °C, does not support differences in temperature and air currents and heat sources.
Substrate must be composed of ground leaves and peat in equal parts, and a little sand. Earth should be wet all the time, but without water to stagnate. High ambient humidity needs so you can remove the leaves witha soft, wet, on gravel and the dish you are always wet.
She needs a winter rest period at a temperature of 16-18 °C, without fertilizers and watering to be moderate with warm water every 4-5 days.
The fertilizeaza with a liquid fertilizer every 15 days, or granular fertilizer every 3-6 months. In addition to nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) which must be in the ratio 15:9:15 needs and magnesium (Mg), iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), copper (Cu ), zinc (Zn), boron (B) and molybdenum (Mo), all of which are very important in proper development of the plant.
Adapters is early spring in the vessel, with a higher number than the last.
Spring is multiplied by the apical cuttings, of 8-10 cm long, taken from side branches. Latex can be stopped by placing seedlings base in warm water or carbon powder. Basal portion is inserted into a hormonal product forstimulate root formation. Cuttings can be planted in a pot with peat and sand, covered with a polyethylene bag. At a temperature of 24 ° C root takes place after 3-4 weeks.
Crotone suffer if he TRANSLOC often. If the plant becomes too long and crown rare in spring and can be clipped to stop the latex is sprayed with carbon dust. Some leaves fall during winter is normal, but not in the rest of the year. The causes could be too dry air, temperature difference. If positioned in shady places leaves will lose gloss. Excess water can cause strain mucegairea base. Can be attacked by aphids.
The Pacific Islands, is used for its curative properties: seeds have laxative properties, the leaves can make infusions, and bark is recommended for intestinal infections.
