  • CHARACTERISTICS: Beautifully vibrant small indoor plant, flaunting large oval leaves in a rich mid-green, peppered with a yellow mottled pattern. Originating from Australia, Indonesia and Malaysia, Codiaeum Aucubaefolia is easy to look after and keeps its colourful foliage year-round.
  • SMALL HOUSEPLANT: Ideal indoor plant for small spaces like apartments, window sills, bathrooms, office desks or kitchens. Added bonus of Codiaeum Aucubaefolia being an excellent air purifier!
  • IDEAL GIFT PLANT: No matter the occasion – a birthday, housewarming or holidays – a baby plant will be a perfect gift for your friend or family with a green thumb, or someone aspiring to become a proud plant parent.
  • CARE AND MAINTENANCE: Codiaeum Aucubaefolia will thrive in a bright space, without exposure to strong, direct sunlight. It’ll fare best in fertile, well-drained soil. Water regularly, keeping the soil lightly moist throughout spring and summer when the plant is growing. Mist regularly to provide humidity.

Also known as the Gold Dust Croton, this gorgeous little plant features a golden yellow mottled pattern on its large glossy green leaves. The golden flecks create a unique look that brings colour and charm to any small space.

Croton plants are generally easy to care for. They thrive in a warm, bright spot and can tolerate some direct sunlight (but avoid too much as it can scorch the leaves). The brighter the spot you choose for your new plant, the more vibrant the leaf colour will be. Croton prefers lightly moist soil but doesn’t enjoy being waterlogged so let the soil drain well and let the top 2cm dry out before watering again. 

Codiaeum Aucubaefolia is often referred to as ‘Joseph’s Coat’ because of the array of rich, vibrant colours it comes in. This variety is ideal for adding a bright touch to any room and will be admired by anyone who sees it.

Growing your Croton from its baby stage and watching it mature over time, from a tiny leafy stem to a healthy, fully grown plant is a delight to witness.

It’s not unusual to give your plant a name… so don’t hesitate to choose one that you think suits the plant! Try naming your plant with the first name or word that you think of when you look at it - that’s how we ended up with an orchid named Clover and spider plant called Joseph.
