Plant Description:

-Jatropha curcas is a plant species in the family Euphorbiaceae. It is native to Central America and Mexico, but has been introduced to other parts of the world as a source of oil and as an ornamental plant. The plant is drought-resistant and can grow in poor soil, which makes it attractive for use in landscaping and as a hedge plant. The variegata variety is known for its variegated leaves, which have green and white or yellow stripes. The plant can reach a height of up to 5 meters (16 feet) and produces small, greenish-yellow flowers that give way to poisonous seeds. The seeds contain a toxic oil that can cause skin irritation and, if ingested, can be lethal. The plant has a number of medicinal uses, but it is important to use caution when handling it due to its toxic properties.

Growing tips:


To care for Jatropha curcas var variegata, follow these tips:

  • Plant in well-draining soil in a location that gets plenty of sunlight.
  • Water regularly, but allow the soil to dry out between watering to prevent root rot.
  • Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season.
  • Prune the plant to maintain its shape and size.
  • Protect the plant from freezing temperatures, as it is not frost-tolerant.
  • Wear protective clothing and gloves when handling the plant, as its seeds and sap are toxic
