The golden form of this perfectly hardy garden plant will be fine as an indoor plant if placed in good soil on a light windowsill in a cool room. The amount of water given should not be excessive, and whenthe plant moderation should be the watchword. To retain variegation green growth must be removed as it appears. The best variety is F. japonica ‘Aurea’, with golden-yellow glossy ovate . To increase, use a few cm in length taken in spring or summer.
