Description 

A caladium plant is comprised of a planted bulb, stalks and the most important, the heart shaped leaves.  The leaves themselves are the colorful part of the plant.  No need to wait for flowers or fruit, a caladium begins to show off its brilliant display as the leaves unfurl. Most Caladiums in cultivation grow to about 24 inches (60 cm) high and 24 inches (60 cm) wide.

The large, heart-shaped leaves of ‘Freida Hemple’ caladium are edged in bright green and have bold red centres.

Environment

Caladiums should be planted in a partially shaded area, but most are capable of growing in full sun.  Caladiums grown in full sun will require more water and will have a bit shorter life span due to the harsher growing conditions. 

Water moderately when first planted. A soil that retains some moisture, but does not allow the bulbs to have wet feet is ideal.  Caladiums will let you know when they need watering once they are up.

Fertilizer should be used sparingly.  Too much could cause the leaves to be more green than white.

Planting Tips

After receiving your caladium bulbs, just cover with a little earth, moisten and get ready for a show. Planting caladium bulbs is super easy.  Caladium bulbs should be planted about 2 inches under the soil.   If sprouts are identifiable, plant in upright direction.  If you have no idea about top and bottom just plant it any  way and it will be OK.  They are foolproof in this aspect. 

Landscape

Caladiums are excellent choices to add colour, texture, and form to shady areas, making them a standout in your garden or containers. These plants are ideal border plants, lovely in window boxes and stunning when planted in a random mix in beds. These plants are the perfect solution for brightening a shady porch or a covered deck. Can also be used to decorate your entryways and mailboxes.

Caution

All parts of the plant are poisonous. should not be ingested and may irritate sensitive  skin.
