Handsome Contrast and Texture
Caladium Aaron beautifully brightens a shady site with its luminous white, heart-shaped leaves with feathered dark green margins. Prominent frosty white veining provides stunning contrast and texture on this handsome foliage plant. This variety flaunts brighter contrast with more light; however, not full sun. A bright spot without direct sunlight is necessary to prevent leaf scorching during the hot afternoon sun. *NOTE: Bulbs will need to be lifted in fall in zones 3-8.

Caladium Plant Care

Hardy in zones 9-10. Caladiums prefer loose, slightly acidic soil for good root growth and are heavy feeders. Pot early indoors in shallow pots or flats with peat moss or light potting soil approximately 2 deep. Bulbs will take three to six weeks for leaves to emerge. Bulbs can be moved outdoors pot and all in semi-shade after last spring frost and can be planted directly in well-drained soil once the outdoor soil temp is about 65-70F. Amend soil with plenty of peat or pine bark and add a well-balanced 10-10-10 fertilizer after foliage has emerged. Follow with a 5-10-10 approximately every four weeks until fall. Only fertilize while plant is actively growing. Water thoroughly when the soil is dry to the touch. Lift tubers in the fall in zones 3-8 and store in a cool, dry, frost-free location over winter. Can store in dry peat or wood shavings, then replant the following spring after the last frost.
