GROWING COLOURFUL, EXOTIC CALADIUMS IN MY GARDEN #2

In yesterday's post, I shared three types of Caladiums and today I will be sharing another three.

Today I would not be repeating what I have written yesterday about Caladiums, but you can click here to read about the brief description on Caladiums.

Caution: All parts of Caladium are not edible, they are poisonous. The sap may cause skin irritation to some individuals.
Caladiums - deep green leaves, with pink midribs and pink and white centre.
When the leaf is younger, the midrib is lighter in colour with a smaller centre.

A young tender leaf, with pink midrib and a small splash of white in the centre.

A tuber of a Caladium - because of excess rain, my plant has "die". I have since replanted this tuber, waiting for it to regrow again.

Dwarf Caladium that can grow to about 6 inches height - light green leaves, dark green midribs, with red and white spots.

Dwarf Caladium in a small pot.

Caladiums do not have any stems, leaves stalks grow directly from the tubers under the ground.

Caladium - green leaves with deep pink midribs and spotted with light pink.

If under shade, the colour will be in darker shade.

New leaves growing from tubers. Colours are not clear yet.

Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children,

because he was the son of his old age,

and he made him a coat of many colours.

His brothers saw that their father loved him more

than all his brothers, and they hated him

and couldn't speak peaceably to him.

(Genesis 37:3-4, World English Bible-WEB)

  18. Hi Nancy. Nice photos. Do you know the names of those 2 Caladiums? Also, the last letter in the brush script watermark text in your photos looks like a letter 'b' and not an 'h'. Is it supposed to be a 'b'? I don't have the font handy to confirm but I've used it before. --J
