List of files and visuals associated with this text.

Most caladiums have brightly colored foliage. The type called elephant ears is a very large plant with large leaves. The green leaved types take medium light. Colored leaved types need about 50 percent sun for best leaf color while red leaved varieties need more. Keep the soil evenly moist. Once good root systems are developed, fertilize monthly with any house plant fertilizer. Caladiums grow well within temperatures of 60 to 85 degrees. Plant the tubers one inch deep. When the leaves turn yellow, store tubers in soil at 60 degrees.
