Caladiums Sold in Nursery

These are what currently sold in the market, these are the new hybrids where it is introduced during the CNY season. They haven't really made a come back in their popularity zone as everyone is aware about their setback - dormancy.

And therefore these are sold in a good price, normally spanning around RM10 - RM12 depending on their availability and generosity of the nursery owner. Sometimes they want to clear the stock and release them at the wholesale price - getting them at a good price is good but sometimes the plant condition can be a little bit detrimental especially when they going into dormancy.

Some cultivar are so interesting as they appear to dish out their normal green into the colorful array of unique red appearance. However it is, red somehow has it's best appearance for this plant especially not may plants are featured as such graceful as this.

Do let me know if you own a Caladium and how you care and cultivate them. Share your thoughts and experience and I would really love to hear from you.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I am glad I could brighten your day with some northeastern blooms! The Caladiums are wonderful. We grow them here as annuals and they will last all summer. Stay safe and well.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. Only a few people in my immediate area have ponds in their gardens, but I know some have placed netting over the ponds to protect their koi fish from kingfishers.
Lovely Caladiums! The main problem I have with caladiums is that moles and/or voles eat the bulbs if I plant them in the ground. So to grow them I have to plant them in flower pots.
Hope you are having a good week.
Be careful, the world gets more dangerous every minute.
