We currently have a very limited amount of Caladiums available and as they vary in appearance from plant to plant we have decided to list them individually, the plant you see photographed is the EXACT PLANT you will receive.
(Depending on the amount of time the plant stays in our care, they may have developed more leaves/lost some older lower leaves.)
The ‘it girl’ of the plant world, everyone wants to get their hands on a Caladium!
Caladiums go dormant over winter and grow back again the following Spring (an even bigger and fuller plant!). Their leaves will start to die back when the temperature gets cooler around Autumn time. Store the tubers somewhere cool and dry over winter (this is important so they don’t rot) then begin watering them again in the Spring when it starts to get warmer.
We provide printed care guides with detailed instructions on how to care for your Caladium through dormancy (and how to wake it back up in the Spring!).
Caladium do have quite thin, delicate leaves are are susceptible to some transit damage because of this. Damaged leaves can be trimmed back and your Caladium will develop more growth in no time.
Light: Bright, indirect sunlight will produce the biggest leaves but also really show off the plants bold, varying colours. Be Careful not to leave them in direct sun or their leaves will crisp.
Water: During growing season water regularly, wait until the soil is dry before watering again. Always keep soil slightly moist, drooping leaves is a sign that your Caladium needs watering. Do not water over Winter whilst your Caladium is dormant.
Food: Feed once a month once your bulb starts growing leaves
Humidity: These plants thrive in a high humidity situation, a decreased humidity can cause brown, crispy leaves.
