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 thi…
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 place…
This little gal was dying when I got her off of a clearance rack. A week in the house, and she’s already sprouted a new leaf and is also sprouting a whole new branch.
I’ve had this plant for less than an month and shes already grown 4 new beautiful leaves AND is pollinating!!! So beautiful and loves sunlight
find a humid shady spot that gets a litttttle bit of sun and your caladium will soon grow the size of your head!
They don’t like too much light so this is a perfect plant to put in your house under a light and look beautiful!
very beautiful, but mine came with spider mites and it’s not doing to well, it’s in recovery tho.
It’s unique shape and colour of leaves is perfect to be placed in the midst of all your greens.
it’s very pretty, and since i’ve gotten it i have seen noticeable growth even in the same day!
The leaves are soo big and beautiful. It’s a very fast grower and does well in medium light

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
