6. Japanese aukuba
Among the most variegated indoor plants, shrubs are not so common, and the aucuba is considered a unique plant. Beautiful specks on the leaves and the stunning beauty of the crown are characteristic of this plant as much as its unpretentiousness. And the only difficulty in growing Japanese aucuba is associated with the cool wintering, which is not worth worrying about in the cold northern rooms.
Botanical name: Aucuba japonica.
Nicknames: sausage tree, golden tree.
General description: decorative leafy shrub with a speckled pattern.
Aucuba japonica is a unique large shrub with large variegated leaves, which can grow up to more than 2 meters even in indoor conditions. Ovate or oval leaves sit oppositely on thin shoots. The bright base color of the leaf blades is combined with golden spots and specks. This is a dioecious shrub, which is not so easy to achieve fruiting. But if this succeeded, then the bright red fruits of the aucuba will perfectly complement its variegated crown.
Use in rooms: soloist, to highlight and enliven gloomy corners.
Aucuba reveals its beauty only when it is kept cool in winter, when the air temperature does not exceed 13 degrees Celsius. Even in summer, the plant feels better in the cool. Therefore, the northern rooms for the aucuba are ideal. Moreover, the plant perfectly tolerates the strongest shading.
Aucuba substrate: any versatile and lightweight.
Reproduction methods: stem and apical cuttings.
The main thing in caring for aucuba is accurate watering even in summer. It is a drought-tolerant shrub that prefers a stable, light substrate moisture. Top dressing during the active growth period for this plant is carried out often. Pinching and pruning the shoots will help keep the plant from growing and maintain a decorative crown.
