Growing Recommendations – Caladiums
Caladiums are native to South America. They are considered to be a pretty hardy plant. They come in many colors and varieties and produce beautiful heart and arrow shaped leaves. that can be grown in-doors or outdoors. If you are planning to use caladiums in your outdoor flower beds, we recommend planting them in late April or May. Timing is dependant upon the region you live in. If the ground is too cold, tubers can sometimes rot, before they start to grow. When soil temperatures are starting to warm, the tubers seem to be the most productive.
