Caladiums are extremely easy to grow in moist, well-drained soil. These shade loving but sun tolerant plants thrive in heat and humidity.
Caladium plants are beautiful tropical tender perennials with stunning, multi-coloured heart-shaped leaves.
To care for caladium plants, grow the unusual tropical foliage plants in a shaded location. Caladiums grow best in a light, rich, well-draining potting mix that is evenly moist. Water the plant when the soil feels dry. Fertilize caladiums every two weeks in the growing season.
The best location to grow caladium plants in your garden is in filtered sun or shade. You should also check that there is protection from wind. Caladium leaves tend to be thin and delicate, and they are easily damaged in strong winds.
