Caricature plant is a versatile grower that thrives in both full sun and full shade. You typically see darker, richer foliage color in the sun, but you have to water it more.

You can prune caricature plant any time it starts to grow out of bounds. You typically don’t need to fertilize caricature plant when it’s grown in the landscape, but it will grow faster if you do. Fertilize regularly when it’s living in pots for best growth.
