The Croton Mammy (Codiaeum variegatum) is among the variants of the Croton plant and is characterized by its colorful leaves which twist and curl as they grow. Crotons are among some of the boldest houseplants because of their colorful foliage, characterized by their often bright yellow, orange, red, and even black leaves.

Being native to Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, and the Western Pacific Ocean Islands where it grows in open forests and scrubs, the Croton Mammy has over time morphed into a popular indoor and outdoor decorative shrub.

Pot Size

4" standard plastic nursery pot. 


    Light

    For a plant popularised by its multicolored leaves, the Codiaeum Mammy loves good lighting. However, this should not be mistaken for the need for it to be overexposed to the sun.

    Mammy Croton leaves need bright but indirect light for them to properly show off their hues of color. Little or no light will turn the leaves green and dull while on the other end striking a good balance for the light exposure gives it an extremely different outcome.

    For it to survive in a hot and dry environment, with exposure to harsh sun, the Croton Mammy can be cushioned against such extremes by placing it under a shade.

    Water

    Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil is dry to the touch, keeping the soil moist but not soaked. Never allow the soil to dry completely. If the leaves begin to brown, it may be a sign of overwatering.

    Plant Specific Care

    Codiaeum Mammy thrives in well-draining soils with the soil pH level ideally between 4.5-6.5 pH. Ensure that your Mammy Croton grows with all the necessary nutrients by applying a quality fertilizer three times a year into the soil at least once in spring, summer, and fall.
