Growing your Bleedng Heart Plant

Fertilization of the clerodendrum thomsoniae, rare types of tropical flowers

If you already growing a bleeding heart plant or the bleeding heart vine remember to fertilize it quarterly, and always starting in the beginning of spring to late summer, never during the winter when the plant is more dormant.

If you use fertilizers that are too rich in nitrogen this will definitely help in promoting more growth, but too much nitrogen in the soil can cause unwanted growth and may cause its beautiful blooms to slow down and not produce as much on the bleeding heart vine.

Light Conditions for your Bleeding Heart Plant

Your lighting in and around your home changes because of the time changes and with the seasons changing because of the movement of the earth and the sun, so be aware of where the sun is and try to keep your plant near it.

Always remember the northern and eastern sides of a house receive the least amount of direct sunlight, but with northern sunshine being the shadiest. On the flip side your best bet is the western and southern sides of a house receive most light unless you have high wall on those sides but are best for getting optimum exposures due to intense afternoon sun.

Make sure to notice where the sun is at different times of the day. By doing this you knowledge of the light pattern will help you choose the right spot when planting your Dicentra Spectabilis or clerodendrum thomsoniae.

How Much Sun
This plant requires full sun, it's what it loves best especially the morning sun.

Keep the soil moist.....Moist means that you should water on a regular basis soaking the soil. Be sure the soil does not dry out completely between each watering.

If you do happen to see these beautiful fast growing shrubs in bloom with its most popular, red, pink and white flowers it is usually love at first sight!
