  • Planting Instructions

    Planting Caladium Bulbs

    Caladiums are tropical foliage plants that provide a splash of color in summer flower beds. They grow well in shaded areas, containers, hanging baskets, and as borders. Caladiums are easy to grow; they are tropical plants, native to Brazil. So, it's no surprise that these plants love a warm, shady, humid environment. It grows to it's full height of 12" to 30" in one season. You can add drama to any landscape with the addition of caladiums. Their brightly-colored leaves, in shades of red, pink, white and green, are perfect in a grouping or as an accent for other plants.

    When to Plant your Caladium Bulbs

    If you wish to give your Caladium bulbs a head start, you may plant them indoors 6 weeks before the last frost date. If you start outdoors, make sure the soil is warm before planting your Caladiums bulbs –the night temperature must reach the high 60’s or warmer on a consistent basis.

    Where to Plant your Caladium Bulbs:

    Finding the right location for your outdoor caladium is important and well-draining soil is a must. Partial sunlight is best for the caladium. Caladiums bulbs also like rich soil; if the soil is poor, add generous amounts of compost and manure. Last, plant the caladium where it will not be affected by strong wind. Too much wind can damage the plant's large leaves.

    How to Plant your Caladium Bulbs

    Plant the caladium bulbs in holes that are 2 inches deep. When you hold the tuber up, look for the part of the tuber which has something similar to the eyes on a potato. Gently put the tuber in the ground, with the part with the eyes pointing up. Add a little bone meal to the soil and plant other tubers about 12 inches apart. Water them generously to encourage the caladium to take root. Caladium bulbs should be kept moist during germination, without allowing the soil to become soggy. Cool nights and excessive moisture can cause the bulb to rot. Once the caladiums breaks ground it is easy to tell when to water as they will droop very easily if thirsty. You will need to adjust your watering schedule based on your climate and the amount of sun the plant receives.

    How to Care for your Caladium Bulbs

    Caladium grows well with little care or attention. Fertilize outdoors once a month with a general purpose fertilizer. Indoors, use a liquid fertilizer every couple of weeks. During the growing period, remove any dead or damaged leaves. Trim the yellow growth from the foliage when the growing season has passed. Where winter is a concern, dig up the caladium bulbs before the frost sets in. Lay them out in a cool, dry area and, when the caladium bulbs are dry, remove the dead leaves and store them in net bags until spring. Make sure that the temperatures in the area where the bulbs are stored do not drop below 60 degrees.

Massive Leaves

I ordered White Queen, White Christmas, and Red Flash for planting in the NW suburbs of Chicago as winter-stored perennials. I started then inside in early may, planted them in early June.

All have come in now in July and they look amazing! White Queen is the big winner, massive pink leaves!

2 recommendations: first, if you are starting then indoors, use heating pads under your pots or trays. The red flash barely started until I moved it outside-- the soil needed to be warmer in my basement. Second, plant these much closer than the listed spacing. If you're up in zone 5 like me, these are never going to be in ground long enough to fill out. If you want a row or hosta effect, you really need to bunch them an inch or 2 apart.

Aside from that, awesome color! The white queen really pop, almost neon pink. Nothing else gives color like under so much shade.
