Gwen, a Codiaeum Gold Sun, is without doubtt one of the most bright and colourful houseplants you'll find! Her bright green leaves are slightly matte in texture and speckled with fluorescent yellow dots, almost like paint splatter.
The Codiaeum family displays a kaleidoscope of colours and leaf shape, both of which can change with age - plus, they're one of the best air fresheners around!
Gwen, Codiaeum Gold Sun
Gwen prefers bright light and a few hours of direct sunlight per day is recommended – that being said, avoid mid-day sun as this could cause the leaves to fade.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
