Caladium 'Pink Beauty' Bulb
Caladium 'Pink Beauty' is a fast-growing tropical aroid from South America that has beautiful heart-shaped leaves with vibrant coloration. This plant has adapted to seasonal dryness by storing energy underground in a tuber through the growing season in order to grow again the following spring when the rain returns.
This particular cultivar has green leaves with large splattery pink sections and dark pink veins. The youngest leaves of this plant start off mostly green, but each new leaf will have more vibrant pink coloration than the previous one. The paperthin leaves are happiest with high humidity and heat, so we recommend growing them in a bright spot out of direct sun with other tropical plants nearby to increase the ambient humidity. Pebble trays are another great way to increase humidity around the plant.
Although these plants are often grown outdoors in warmer climates, we love the pop of color they add to indoor spaces. Each spring, we get excited by the abstract pink designs on the leaves, and we're excited to offer these bulbs for you to grow!
How to Grow
• Plant one bulb 1-2" deep in a 4" pot with a drainage hole using well-draining soil (or two to three bulbs in a 6" pot for a fuller appearance). The growth points (pointy, lumpy side) should face up.
• When new growth appears, water and fertilize regularly through the growing season. Place in bright, indirect light.
• Fertilize regularly throughout the growing season.
• Stop watering when the foliage starts to die back in the fall, and keep the bulb completely dry through the winter. Each year, the plant will come back bigger and taller!
