Just so, can you bring caladium indoors?
You can plant them indoors in planters four to six weeks before the last frost is expected. If you plant them indoors, they will need transplanting. However you plant them, always plant tubers with the eyes face-up. Place your indoor caladiums where they'll get lots of light.
Similarly, when should I plant my caladium bulbs? Planting caladium bulbs takes little effort. They can be planted directly in the garden during spring or started indoors four to six weeks before the average frost date. Soil temperature is an important consideration, as planting too early outdoors can cause tubers to rot.
Besides, should caladium bulbs be soaked before planting?
Caladiums are sensitive to cold. They should not be planted in the ground until June. Get a jump start by soaking the tubers in warm water (120°F) for an hour before planting. After the roots emerge in 2 to 3 weeks, fertilize weekly with a liquid, 1-1-1, slow-release fertilizer.
Can caladiums grow in water?
Some you can plant in pots to sink in the water, others will thrive in the moist soil around the edges. The other advantage of using Caladiums is that you can bring spots of bright white or rosy color to shady spots around the water's edge.
