Light While the heartleaf prefers indirect sunlight, it will do fine in almost any lighting condition. Even areas of low light can be fine, though the leaves will spread more and the colors won’t be as vibrant or glossy.
Water Being a Caribbean plant, it likes moist environments best. In the summertime, keep the soil moist, but not soggy. In the wintertime, allow the top half-inch of soil to dry between waterings. You can spritz the leaves with water and wipe them down with a cloth to remove dust.
This plant won’t make you guess if you’re watering correctly, nor will it act melodramatically if you aren’t. Overwatering = yellow leaves; underwatering = brown leaves
Soil Any quality potting soil will do as long as it is well-draining. You can also mix Perlite, sterilized garden loam, or coarse sand with half the amount of peat moss for your own soil.
