Caladium 'Pink Symphony' Bulb
Caladium 'Pink Symphony' is a fast-growing tropical aroid from South America that has beautiful rippled leaves with striking colors. This cultivar has a spiderweb design of dark green veins, juxtaposed against the pink and white leaves. Each leaf looks different from the last, but they all are breathtaking works of art.
This plant is native to South America where it experiences a wet season and a dry season. To keep Caladiums happy, we replicate this phenomenon indoors by allowing the plant to dry and the foliage to die back each fall. We withhold water as the days get shorter and keep the bulbs dry until the following spring.
Although these plants are often grown outdoors in warmer climates, we love the pop of color they add to indoor spaces.
Dormant tubers only sold in spring.
How to Grow Indoors
• Plant one bulb 1-2" deep in a 6" pot with a drainage hole using well-draining soil. The growth points (pointy, lumpy side) should face up.
• Grow in bright, indirect light.
• When new growth appears, water and fertilize regularly through the growing season. We water when the top 1-2" of soil is dry to the touch.
• Stop watering completely when the foliage starts to die back in late fall. Let the soil dry, trim off the dead leaves, and keep the pot dry until spring. Each year, the plant will come back bigger!
