Caricature plant (Graptophyllum pictum) is an evergreen, ornamental shrub. It can grow to 6 – 9 ft tall. Graptophyllum pictum is basically grown for its variegated foliage.

Water thoroughly during the growing season and always keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy. You can allow the top 1 inch of soil to dry out between each watering. During the winter months, reduce watering.
