What other plant parents say
This plant is beautiful and has so much character! It’s one of my favorites in my collection, however I think if it doesn’t have enough humidity the leaves will dry up, turn brown, and crack in place…
This little gal was dying when I got her off of a clearance rack. A week in the house, and she’s already sprouted a new leaf and is also sprouting a whole new branch.
I’ve had this plant for less than an month and shes already grown 4 new beautiful leaves AND is pollinating!!! So beautiful and loves sunlight
find a humid shady spot that gets a litttttle bit of sun and your caladium will soon grow the size of your head!
very beautiful, but mine came with spider mites and it’s not doing to well, it’s in recovery tho.
It’s unique shape and colour of leaves is perfect to be placed in the midst of all your greens.
it’s very pretty, and since i’ve gotten it i have seen noticeable growth even in the same day!
The leaves are soo big and beautiful. It’s a very fast grower and does well in medium light
Need high humidity, easy care. Has doubled its size since brought it home.
I keep mine far from a Window, he does not do well with sun
How to care for Heart of Jesus
Heart of Jesus needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Heart of Jesus may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Heart of Jesus in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Heart of Jesus after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
