Finding the perfect plant parent
Their leaves are paper-thin and light up when they catch the sunlight. Caladiums are bulbs which produce leaves from Spring to Autumn, so expect total leaf fall in Autumn. When that happens, stop watering and place your plant somewhere warm. The following spring, begin watering again and move the plant back to a bright spot. Your Caladium bulb will awaken and start producing leaves.

plants you may love
The caladium originates from the tropical forests of Central & South America, where they have wet and dry seasons. Being a bulb, this plant goes dormant during the dry season which for us is Autumn through to Spring, so you can hold off watering during this time. Their large arrow / heart shaped leaves make for eye-catching ornamental pieces and can be seen with varying patterns of white, red and pink. A true show stopper of a plant!
