transplant and detection of pests.In all other cases, must wait for a stable and well-being of at least one full sheet, and only then think about the transplant.
first 3 years of life codiaeum transplanted every spring, because at this time it is growing most actively.With the increase, if the plant is slow, it is possible to skip one year, but, as a rule, do not have.Pot choose a little more than the previous diameter, 2-3 cm, preferring the same form that the plant was easier to adapt.Required for the transplant to have a good drainage layer of at least 3 cm, consisting of expanded clay balls or gravel.In order to eliminate the possibility of carrying pests haydite when buying in a store, it is recommended to boil in normal water for about an hour.Thereafter, expanded clay is dried on paper or cloth and poured into a pot.On top of the layer of expanded clay poured a layer of soil at least 2 cm. The soil for Croton need to be of equal amounts of peat, leaf of earth and sod land, you can add to it a little sand or coal.Pieces of coal can be used in pots with codiaeum as a drainage layer.
