Care Tips

Allow the top inch of soil to dry between waterings. Feed monthly during spring and summer with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half. Keep away from cold drafts. Move containers indoors before temperatures drop below 50°F.


Variegated Clusia works nicely in outdoor planters and hanging baskets. It also shines as a houseplant, accenting shelves and tabletops with its colorful foliage. Plant in groups for high impact color.

Planting Tips

Space Variegated Clusia plants 2-3 feet apart in partly shaded garden beds. Dig a hole twice the container width, backfill with soil, and water well after planting. For containers, use a quality potting mix and allow for drainage.


Pinch back new growth to encourage bushiness. Rotate the plant periodically to encourage even growth. Transplant when rootbound, moving it into a container one size larger. Remove dead leaves and flowers as needed.

Pests and Diseases

Watch for scale, mealybugs and spider mites. Treat with neem oil or insecticidal soap sprays. Avoid overwatering which can lead to root rot. Improve air circulation and promptly remove affected foliage.
