African Mask Plant

Care Tips for African Masks?

JasonSM added on March 16, 2012 | Answered

I have close to 30 houseplants all healthy. However, I have killed 3 African masks and none of the tips I've gotten online have helped. As this is a favorite plant in my family, any information would be appreciated.

African Masks are a type of caladium. They like bright indirect light, consistently damp soil and high humidity. In my experience, what typically kills African Masks is a lack of humidity. If you feel that they are getting enough humidity, light might be the issue.

For me, these plants do best if they spend some time outdoors in the summer in a shady spot.
