They do love a lot of light but not direct sunlight. If you want it in a window where its a lot direct sunlight, put it on a pedestal as bit further in to the room.

Beautiful plant! Protect it from any sun rays falling directly onto it. Otherwise, as much indoor light as possible, as Janett has suggested.

That is a beautiful plant! Thumbs up
Bleeding Heart Vine (Clerodendrum thomsoniae)
Though our zones are totally different, mine grows outdoors in some pretty tough "full' sun, and seems to do well.
It freezes back in the winter, and flushes out beautifully each spring. Seems to be a great little "toughie"! Very adaptable. Smiling

Its totally different when grown outside as the soil cools it down compared to a window sill where BOTH plant and pot becomes scorching hot in full sun

Very true... I tip my hat to you.
The OP didn't specify as to whether it would be grown indoors, or out.
Click on the link to the data page, and the lighting suggestions are wide spread...Everything from full sun to dappled shade.
I was just adding my experiences/2cents, as it were. Shrug!
