Codiaeum variegatum var. pictum is an evergreen perennial species that is frequently grown indoors as a colourful foliage houseplant. This plant has leathery foliage with a variable width down their length, the leaves are brightly coloured and heavily veined leaves in shades of red, orange, yellow, gold and green. Flowers are tiny, white or yellow, star-shaped and appear during the summer months. Grows best with ample humidity, this species is well placed in a bright conservatory, but should be kept out of direct sunlight, instead preferring bright, indirect conditions and plenty of warmth. An east or west facing window is perfect. This tender species makes a fantastic houseplant, brightening up any room.
Softwood cuttings should be taken in summer and dipped into a powdered charcoal mix to reduce the amount of bleeding.
