So let’s get started. For those not familiar with caladiums, the following is a short crash course.
A caladium plant is comprised of a planted bulb, stalks and the most important, the heart shaped leaves. The leaves themselves are the colorful part of the plant. No need to wait for flowers or fruit, a caladium begins to show off its brilliant display as the leaves unfurl. We sell the ready-to-plant caladium bulbs. After receiving your caladium bulbs, just cover with a little
earth, moisten and get ready for a show. Our Planting and Growing Tips page should answer any questions you have regarding the gardening process.
There are two types of caladiums. The first, and most common group of caladiums is referred to as “Fancy Leaf”. This type of caladium typically grows about knee high (assuming you are not taller than say 6’2”) and has an average leaf size comparable to a dinner plate.
The second group of caladiums is referred to as “Strap & Dwarf”. As the name implies, these caladium bulbs produce plants that have smaller leaves, comparable to a salad plate. Heights for these types of caladiums can vary from ankle high to almost knee high (again assuming you are not overly tall).
