Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Caladium Kathleen after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
This place did not like the dry air in my kitchen so I moved it to the porch where it’s a bit more humid and it is thriving I have since gotten 6 new growths since moving it. With the proper care this plant can produce beautiful leaves, and when one dies off another will grow in its place, love it!
This plant is beautiful and has so much character! It’s one of my favorites in my collection, however I think if it doesn’t have enough humidity the leaves will dry up, turn brown, and crack in places. I’m trying a few methods to fix it up, overall great and gorgeous plant.
