I was pretty suprised too. @lesliecole49 I wasn't even expecting it to make it thru the winter inside let alone flower u know. White plants are usually hard to keep alive in the first place. Now I wish I would have tried to keep all my caladiums over the winter I had so many pretty ones in the summer but I only kept this one I think. Not sure what I did with the rest of them. My memory is horrible or maybe I have too many plants to keep track of? Lol

Yes it was potted and outside all summer @lesliecole49 and for some reason I think due to space this is the only one i really tried to overwinter

Are you keeping the bulbs from the dead ones? As long as they didn't die from rot, they will always come back(in my personal experience).

So I brought my caladiums inside still in the pots. And I am planning on putting them in the basement but were having sewage problems at the moment so right now they are in my living room by the back door where there isnt much light and a tiny draft from under the door. Not sure if any of that is correct but I havent watered in awhile and they are just in dry pots. Is that cool

I can't say for certain because I'm no expert. But I think they'll still come back in your circumstances. I have all my Caladium bulbs planted outside. The cold kills them every year, but they pop up in spring no matter what. I would say water them occasionally, just so they don't dry up completely(mine are exposed to rain during winter) and they should be fine. 👍

Thats why she got segregated away from the other elephant ears etc and closer to the door and windows. I was thinking the white needs more light @cyndi

White on white #repot broke off 2 nice leaves and put in water hoping they root for a friend. Well see not sure if they can or not
