Plant Description:

Excoecaria bicolor variegata is a small, evergreen shrub native to the rainforests of Malaysia. It is known for its beautiful, variegated foliage, which is green with creamy white margins. The plant produces small, yellow flowers that are followed by spherical, red fruit. It grows best in tropical or subtropical climates with high humidity and moist, well-draining soil. It can be grown in pots or in the ground, and is often used as a border plant or as an accent in a tropical garden. It prefers partial to full shade and should be protected from direct sunlight, which can scorch its leaves. It is generally easy to care for and is relatively pest-free, but it may be prone to leaf drop if not provided with sufficient moisture.

Growing tips:

To care for Excoecaria bicolor variegata, follow these guidelines:

  1. Light: This plant prefers partial to full shade and should be protected from direct sunlight, which can scorch its leaves.

  2. Water: Water the plant regularly to keep the soil evenly moist, but be sure to avoid overwatering, which can lead to root rot. In general, the plant should be watered when the top inch or so of soil is dry.

  3. Soil: Use a well-draining soil mix that contains a good amount of organic matter. The plant prefers a soil pH that is slightly acidic to neutral (between 6.0 and 7.0).

  4. Fertilizer: Feed the plant a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every two to four weeks during the growing season (spring through fall).

  5. Temperature: Excoecaria bicolor variegata is native to the tropics and prefers warm, humid conditions. It is best suited to temperatures between 60 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit (16 and 32 degrees Celsius).

  6. Pruning: Prune the plant as needed to maintain its desired shape and size.

  7. Pests: This plant is generally pest-free, but it may be prone to infestations of aphids, mealybugs, or scale insects. If you notice any of these pests on your plant, use an appropriate pesticide to control them.

  8. Repotting: Repot the plant every two to three years, or whenever it becomes root-bound. Use a pot that is slightly larger than the previous one and fresh potting soil.
