Elephant Ears (Caladium)


Caladium humboldtii is a decorative foliage plant, with green leaves splashed heavily with contrasting white markings. Caladiums are tropical plants that grow from an underground corm that dies down in winter, and will resprout in spring.  They can be grown as pot plants, as a specimen plant or as massed colour for shaded tropical or sub-tropical areas. In cooler areas they can be grown in greenhouses, patios or indoors, or, if grown in the garden, the corms can be lifted as they die down, and stored before replanting in spring.

Caladiums like warmth and humidity, and protection from full sun. They should have regular watering to keep the soil moist, but over watering can lead to rotting of the corm. Regular fertilising with half strength liquid fertiliser will give sturdy growth.

Propagation is from offsets from larger corms.

All parts of the plant are poisonous if ingested.
