Codiaeum Variegatum Var. Pictum Mrs Iceton 21cm Pot

Better known as Joseph’s Coat or Croton, this eye-catching shrub shows off its vibrant technicolour foliage! The large, oval leaves are rigid and glossy, with a unique pattern in brilliant red, gold and green colours. Each evergreen leaf is quite unique, creating a superb focal point for any space in the home. Codiaeum variegatum var. pictum ‘Mrs Iceton’ is ideal for a warm and humid room making it a fantastic choice for a warm conservatory, bright kitchen, or bathroom. It has an upright habit which provides maximum impact without taking up too much floor space. Height: 1m (39). Spread: 50cm (20). Codiaeum needs careful placement in order to thrive. Position in a warm room with a constant temperature above 16C (60F). For the optimum leaf colour, place in a bright position in good light, but keep away from the glare of direct sun – an east or west facing window would be perfect. Water frequently between spring and autumn using tepid rainwater where possible and allowing the pot to drain well after each watering. In the winter, reduce watering but do not let the soil dry out. Feed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. Croton will thrive in a humid atmosphere so by placing it on a tray filled with pebbles and water, as the water evaporates it will increase humidity around the plant.
