Caladium Care

Temperature: Above 70ºF (21ºC) is the best temperature to provide, and no lower than 60ºF (15ºC).
Light: In their natural habitat the heart of Jesus plant grows in shaded areas. Indoors that can be artificially provided with a fairly bright room, without direct sun light. Direct sun will scorch and damage the leaves.
Watering: After the tubers show signs of growth (small shoots) water frequently - and keep the soil moist.
Soil: A nutrient rich and well draining potting soil is required.
Fertilizer: I would feed every week with a diluted liquid fertilizer during the growing season.
Re-Potting: These are taken out of the pot when the foliage dies down during fall and then re-potted (as mentioned above).
Humidity: In it's natural habitat this plant is likely to grow with higher humidity levels than we have in our homes, but the average levels within a home should be fine.
Propagation: Tubers can be divided before planting in spring. When dividing a tuber make sure at least one growing eye is available, so a stem can begin to grow.
