Caladiums are amazing foliage plants with colorful leaves that have absolutely no frost tolerance. A tropical plant native to South America and Central America, they are loved by its many species and heart-shaped leaves with unique structures.
High humidity is important for Caladiums. So it will do great with daily showers from a spray bottle, but don’t leave any big water drops on the foliage.
Caladium are seasonally dormant plants. At the end of the growing season the leaves will start to fade. At this point you will have to reduce watering to stop it completely when all the foliage is gone and your plant has entered the winter rest.
Store it in its pot in a warm place not colder than 16°C (60°F). It will need about two months of rest period. After that, take the tuber up, change the soil, take a bigger pot if the tuber has grown substantially and start it all over again.
Light might be a complicated issue with Caladiums planted outdoors. Too much direct sun and it will burn the leaves or attractive pink color will turn brown. To little light and the colors may be not as prominent as you could expect.
Growing indoors the perfect place for your Caladiums would be in an east or west facing window. A few hours sun light in morning or evening is all they need to reveal all its glory.
