Codiaeum need plenty of bright light. Direct sunlight for at least a few hours a day is recommended, however avoid the scorching midday sun as this will cause leaf fade. They can tolerate some degree of shade, but never for prolonged periods of time. The better the light conditions, the more you will be rewarded by fine foliage. Experiment in your home to find the ideal spot for your plant.
Codiaeum needs to be in damp soil at all times. They do not respond well to soil that is wet or dry, and either will cause leaf drop. Watering with lukewarm water is recommended.

Increased humidity levels are a must. Stand on a wet pebble tray to improve humidity and mist frequently. Does best in kitchens and bathrooms.
