Description

The Codiaeum variegatum 'Bush on Fire', commonly known as the colourful Croton, is a spectacular ornamental plant originally from the tropical regions of Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands. Belonging to the Euphorbiaceae family, it is distinguished by its diverse and vivid leaf colours, ranging from green to yellow, intense red, and orange. 'Bush on Fire' thrives in warm and humid conditions, similar to its natural habitat. It prefers a bright location without direct sunlight and high humidity, making it an ideal choice for terrarium design. The soil should be evenly moist but well-drained to prevent waterlogging. Despite its exotic appearance, it is relatively easy to care for, as long as its basic needs for light, moisture, and temperature are met.

In a terrarium, Codiaeum variegatum 'Bush on Fire' can serve as a striking focal point, adding colour and visual interest. Its bushy growth form and bright, multicoloured leaves create an impressive visual impact, enhanced by the occasional, albeit inconspicuous, yellowish flowers. While the flowers play a secondary role compared to the spectacular foliage, they contribute to the overall beauty of the plant. Especially in larger terrariums that allow for the simulation of tropical or subtropical environments, 'Bush on Fire' can be effectively showcased. In addition to its decorative value, the plant also contributes to improving air quality by adding to humidity and filtering pollutants. This makes it not only a visual highlight but also a healthy addition to the terrarium and indoor climate.
