Its a pity to note that Caladium are slowly phasing out from most nurseries. The ones existing are the older unsold ones which might had taken deep roots and had made residence in one corner of the nursery garden.
Other than nurseries, you might find them sprouting out here and there from abandon garden / landscapes where once it had housed out annual plants, except this time all that existed there would had died and this one would had sprouted out after years of dormancy.
Yes, that is the punch-line for Caladiums.
You see them now and then after a long season of absence.
Caladiums are very unpredictable. I had few species that had suddenly disappeared.
I hope they come back from hibernation
(another fact that they can face bulb rot and totally die buried into the soil)
This is the heart of the matter: The bulbs.
They look like a top, a cylindrical pyramid.
The top sharp crown is where the plant shoot comes out
and the roots are barely visible.
These are what you need to keep after they go dormant.
Replanting them after they had finish their season promise their existence in your garden.
They seemed to take turns in making their appearance.
The spots of red and white & cream somehow makes my garden a colourful place.
