Additional Care Information

Caladiums are bulbs that produce leaves Spring-Autumn. Total leaf fall should be expected during Autumn, at which point you should stop watering your plant and put it in a warm place. Start watering again in spring and move into a bright spot to awaken the bulb to start producing new leaves!


• New leaves losing colour: lack of sunlight

• Dry leaf edges: under-watering

• Browning leaves: overwatering

• Leaf fall: total leaf fall expected in autumn
