Planting and care

The genus Caladium includes seven species that are native to South America and Central America, and naturalized in India, parts of Africa, and various tropical islands. Caladiums grow from tubers and can be propagated by dividing the tubers.

These plants thrive in moist, well-drained soil and are generally happier in partial shade. As foliage begins to die down in the fall, reduce water, dig up and air dry bulbs for a week. Store in a dry location at 55 degrees or above.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full sun to partial shade Moist, well-drained soil During their growing season, they require moderate watering. 18 to 24 degrees C Fertilize weekly during the growing season with liquid or use slow-release pellets.

Caring for Caladium

  • In temperate areas, they should be lifted before the first frost.
  • The corms are dried and stored for the winter when temperatures fall to 65 degrees F (18 degrees C) and stored moderately dry (not bone-dry) over the winter at temperatures between 56 degrees F (13 degrees C) and 61 degrees F (16 degrees C).
  • When you plant caladiums, you should plant them about 4 to 6 inches deep and 4 to 6 inches apart.
  • Water the caladiums enough to keep the soil slightly damp but never enough for it to be soggy.
