Codiaeum variegatum 'Tamara' care?
Codiaeum variegatum 'Tamara' is easy for most people but does require good light and frequent regular watering so not for those who are very busy. Perfect in a bright spot, if you want lots of growth and full foliage.
Where should I put it?
Croton Tamara likes high or direct sunlight, a humid, sunny spot is ideal so place on.
How much should I water?
Soil should be kept moist but not soggy. The best advice is to water when you feel the top couple of inches of soil are dry. Our secret tip is to put Codiaeum variegatum 'Tamara' on a bed of pebbles with water, it works wonders for this plant. Always be sure to keep the soil moist during the warmer summer months.
Is this plant suitable if you have pets?
Croton Tamara is toxic to cats and dogs if eaten.
