Caladiums have brightly colored leaves and grow best growing in rich, moist soil and shade. Caladiums need ample moisture during the growing season.
Cover tubers with peat moss and start them indoors during February or March. When roots form, remove tubers from the flat and pot them separately. Keep them warm and shaded after potting. Plant them in the garden when the weather is warmed and settled. Dig tubers when the foliage fades, but before frost. Store tubers in a moderately warm area with a dry covering.
Tubers may be divided when they start growth in spring. The divisions can be rooted in peat moss and potted up separately once well rooted.
