Planting & Care
Jatropha mutifida requires moderately fertile soil with excellent drainage. It has some drought tolerance once established but performs best with regular watering in a full sun situation. In cool zones, plant the specimen in a large container with a gritty houseplant soil. In-ground plants can tolerate rocky or sandy soil.
Container plants should have water reduced in winter. The species tends to self-seed at the base of the plant and can also be propagated by cuttings. Pruning is necessary to keep the plant in habit and when damage is done to the stems.

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Care:
  • Jatropha is remarkably unbothered by insects or disease.
  • Overly wet plants and those that receive splashed mud on the foliage may experience root rot or leaf spot.
  • Common pests include mealybugs, aphids, and scale, whose widespread feeding can diminish plant vigor and destroy the attractive leaves.
