Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Caladium is very easy to grow and adapts to most soil conditions. Bulbs can be dug up in early fall and stored in a cool, dry place over winter and replanted again in spring after the chance of frost has passed. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.
