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.

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.
