Description: Caladiums are known for their big, heart-shaped leaves that display amazing colour combinations of white, pink, red, green and more! These are plants that thrive in hot, humid weather and that usually grow best in full to partial shade. Though caladiums rarely flower, their beautiful foliage guarantees a colourful show wherever they are planted -- beneath trees, between shrubs, in perennial borders or in pots indoors.
Light Requirements: If you’re growing caladiums indoors, keep them in a warm room with plenty of light until outside temperatures are warm enough to transplant. Caladium tubers should be planted about one to two inches (2.5 to 5 cm.) deep with the knobs, or eye buds, facing up. While this may sometimes be difficult to distinguish in some varieties, those that are planted upside down will still emerge, only slower.
Water Requirements: Caladiums need to be watered on a regular basis, especially during dry conditions. In fact, watering them on a weekly basis is recommended. Caladiums that are grown in containers should be checked daily and watered as needed. Applying mulch around caladium plants will help to conserve and maintain moisture, even in containers.
