€10.99 “Price excl. VAT: €9.68”
Croton Iceton is a stunningly beautiful foliage plant with fantastic leaf colour and variegation. The mid-green leaves are glossy with pointed tips and each have a vivid splash of red, pink, yellow or orange. Highly ornamental, it could almost be considered a work of art.
Light: Codiaeum need plenty of bright light. Direct sunlight for at least a few hours a day is recommended, however, avoid the scorching midday sun as this will cause leaf fade. They can tolerate some degree of shade, but never for prolonged periods of time.
Water: Codiaeum needs to be in damp soil at all times. They do not respond well to soil that is wet or dry, and either will cause leaf drop.
Temp: Croton also need warmth. They are happy in temperatures from 18-29°C but can cope with as low as 15°C, however you must avoid draughts.
Humidity: Increased humidity levels are a must. Stand on a wet pebble tray to improve humidity and mist frequently. Does best in kitchens and bathrooms.
Feed: Apply a balanced fertiliser once or twice a month during the growing season.
Care tips: Wipe leaves with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust.
