🌿 Plant Care Tips
An unusual cultivar which has heart shaped, red leaves with strong, intricate, green veining; red bases will become deeper in colour with maturity. Native to Central & South America.
- Although large, Caladium leaves are papery thin and delicate so direct light will cause searing brown spots, scorching and/or bleaching.
- Caladium grow from bulbs or tubers, meaning they will go dormant in winter and old foliage must be cut back at this time to make way for new, spring growth.
- There are 1000+ cultivars of Caladium, but each one creates a strong, architectural effect and stands out for its bright, multi-coloured patterning.
Growth pattern: Compact herbaceous geophyte
Water: When the top 2-3cm of soil becomes dry.

Humidity disclaimer: This plant will grow well outside of a terrarium or cabinet. However, all tropical plants thrive with higher humidity levels. To achieve this we suggest grouping plants together, or putting them in a bathroom or kitchen which gets regular use.
