The Caladium Story
Bulbs: Both old bulbs and new ones can be used. I bought a few new ones because I particularly wanted the red and white ones.
Prepare the soil. Take 1/3rd each of soil, compost and cocopeat and mix together.
Fill the empty pots with this mixture.
Place 2-3 bulbs in each pot and cover with the mixture.
Add a label if you wish. I did.
……..and all done !!!!!
Let them bask in the sun for 1-2 months.
Baby Caladiums unfurling. These are from my old preserved bulbs. The new ones have not unfurled yet.
Unfurling their glory leaf by leaf. These are the new bulbs with the labels.
All ready and blooming! The label on the bulbs and what grew from the bulbs don’t match. But they are beautiful anyway!!!!
