Hi Emily πŸ‘‹πŸ˜Š aw he doesn't look too happy does he?! (My middle grandson Would LOVE the name btw! Lol he's a confirmed Spiderman addict lol πŸ˜‚)

Both drippy leaves and a dry new growth are the same issue tbh... And it's an easy fix till be glad to hear! Lol πŸ˜‚ Peter's just not getting quite enough water hun! πŸ€—πŸ’§

Caladiums like to dry out about 25% of the pot depth, but that's about all.. so I would simply increase your watering schedule a bit! 😁 If you keep updating your dates in Greg, and hitting snooze if the soil is still damp, it will learn Peter's particular frequency and preference and start to.time reminders accordingly πŸ₯°

I would give him a good drenching! I know that's scary when you don't have drainage... Which is why we always recommend using a nursery pot (with drainage holes!) inside of your pretty glazed pot? (It alsoakes it much easier to tell when he needs reporting as you can just pull the plaruc inner out to check if there are roots appearing from the bottom!).

Hopefully he should perk up quite quickly πŸ₯° xxx
@JenniB81 thank you so much!!! He perked right up. Hopefully the baby growth revives itself!!
Yay!!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ₯° Aww that's fantastic news πŸ’š you just made my day! Xx
I have no idea what could be wrong but I love those leaves.
Thanks @Mikie ! I love caladiums for the fun colorings!
