A Bit About Caladium Plants
Caladiums are known for their big heart shaped leaves that display amazing colour combinations. Their rich red, pink, green and white shades change with the maturity of the plant too. They rarely flower, but with fabulous coloured leaves you wont worry!
Caladium is a genus of the family Araceae. They are most often referred to as the Angel Wings plant, but sometimes called the Elephant ear plant, which they share with the closely related Alocasia and Colocasia genera. The caladiums thrive in a hot and humid position, so make an ideal house plant. They like a moist soil without being kept soggy or standing in water.
Caladiums are not frost-hardy so although you can have on a patio or balcony over the summer months be sure to bring it back inside over winter.
In their natural habitat, Caladium plants grow in vast open areas of the forest or on banks of creeks. They go dormant in winter so don’t be surprised if he disappears to hibernate!
