Caladium is a lovely, striking Brazilian delight. The leaf of Caladium is heart- to arrow-shaped, has fine veins and stunning colours: white, silver, green, pink and red.
Caladiums are corm plants and thus grow a bit differently than what we are used to with most houseplants: in the winter they die down. The plant can go entirely into hibernation. Only cut the leaves off when they have dried out completely! Energy from the leaves returns to the corm and ensures that you get a bigger and stronger plant in the spring! Caladium is the botanical name of a genus of tropical plants from Latin and South America, particularly Brazil and the Amazon region, where they grow in the jungle. The name is derived from the Malay word keladi, which means plant with edible roots
