Buddha Belly Plant Description

Jatropha podagrica, a member of the Euphorbiaceae family, is a striking succulent native to Central America. Its most distinctive feature is its swollen stem, resembling a plump belly, hence its popular nickname, “Buddha Belly” plant. This plant typically grows to a height of 3 to 5 feet and is adorned with bright green, lobed leaves and small clusters of coral-red or orange flowers.

Plant Care Jatropha podagrica

Sunlight Requirements of Buddha belly Jatropha

To ensure the optimal growth of your Jatropha podagrica, it’s crucial to provide it with abundant sunlight.

Place your plant in a location where it can receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day.

This succulent thrives in full sun while making it perfect for gardens with ample sunshine.

Soil and Watering

The “Buddha Belly” plant prefers well-draining soil to prevent waterlogging, which can be detrimental to its roots.

A cactus or succulent mix is an excellent choice. And when it comes to watering then allow the soil to dry out completely between watering sessions. Overwatering can lead to root rot.

Fertilizer requirement of Buddha Belly plant

Fertilize your “Buddha Belly” plant during its growing season, which is typically in spring and summer.

Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer, and apply it every four to six weeks. Be cautious not to over-fertilize, as this can harm the plant.

Pruning and Maintenance

Regular pruning is essential to maintain the attractive appearance of Jatropha podagrica. Remove any dead or yellowing leaves, and trim the plant to your desired shape.

This not only enhances its visual appeal but also encourages new growth.
