4” Caladium potted in terracotta planter with saucer. Caladium plants produce leaves only from spring to fall, and then require a rest period of around five months to recharge and sprout anew in spring. Caladiums are poisonous - we do not recommend this plant if you have pets.
Light: Prefers indirect light or moderate shade indoors. The narrower the leaves, the greater the sun it can withstand.
Water: When leaves appear, keep the plant evenly moist. Never allow it to dry out. Caladiums love humidity.
Temperature: The warmer the better. Aim for 70F if possible as that is the temperature at which tubers begin to grow.
Soil: Prefers a rich, well-drained potting mix.
