por Sofia Eiras Antunes
I’m a codiaeum, native to the western Pacific Ocean.
I have it all: colorful foliage, nearly limitless leaf forms, and even a cultish following.
SUN - my vibrant colors depend on bright but indirect light.
WATER - keep me moist but not sitting in water. you can mist me often.
When I get stressed I lose my leaves - if you've just brought me home, wait a few weeks to let me adjust.
HOW I TAKE CARE OF YOU
I’ll add color to your indoor atmosphere, giving your mind a creative boost.
Disclaimer: I’m not pet-friendly, as very few houseplants are. Don’t worry though, I can perfectly co-exist with pets and love them, if you give both the right space.
