Caladiums are an old favorite that are known for their big, beautiful leaves. Caladiums thrive in partial sun and shade; some varieties are a little more sun tolerant. Consider Caladiums for the patio or porch since they are a great plant to grow in containers and large pots. Caladiums can also be used as a house plant. Use 3 tubers to a 6 inch pot. Plant tubers 2 inches below the surface using light garden soil. Water sparingly until first leaves appear. They may be transplanted after flowering. They naturally die back for a rest period in winter; a week after they die back, dig up the tuber and store in an airy, well-ventilated location, where the temperature is cool (50°-60°F), until next spring.
