Caladium hortulanum 'Pink Cloud'

A greenhouse perennial (in temperate regions) which has tuberous roots. These plants die down in Autumn. Although 'Pink Cloud' requires lots of attention, they are worth growing for their brilliantly coloured, pink and green ornamental foliage.


Flowering

From Early Spring TO Late Autumn

Although Caladium does not produce flowers, it is grown for its impressive colourful foliage which appears from early spring until it dies down in Autumn.

 

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Start the tubers into growth in early spring at a temperature of 21C. Place the tubers into a box of damp peat or moss and syringe them twice daily. Once growth emerges, plant them into pots of proprietary peat mixture. Good drainage is essential.
