Brighten up your indoor space with the vibrant colours of caladiums!
Also known as the ‘Bleeding hearts’, caladiums (caladium bicolour) are a bright group of gorgeous tropical bulbs that bring a burst of colour to any space. Emerging in the warmth of spring and summer, caladiums need to be placed in dappled light to shady corners areas and planted in well-drained soil.
At the beginning of the growing season, when new leaves push through, it’s important to keep a watch for slugs and snails as they are their most vulnerable for attack at this stage and need to be protected.
Water occasionally, allowing the plant to slightly dry out between waterings.
