Caladium 'Lance Wharton' is a smaller, full variety of caladium, with speckled with pink and green leaves with a red centre vein. It is tolerant of more sun than other caladium varieties. Caladiums are tropical plants grown for their beautiful foliage. They grow from an underground corm that dies down in winter, and will resprout in spring. They can be grown as pot plants, as a specimen plant or as massed colour for shaded tropical or sub-tropical areas. In cooler areas they can be grown in greenhouses, patios or indoors, or if grown in the garden, they can be lifted as they die down and replanted in spring.
Caladiums like warmth and humidity, and protection from full sun. They should have regular watering to keep the soil moist, but over watering can lead to rotting of the corm. Regular fertilising with half strength liquid fertiliser will give sturdy growth.
Propagation is by offsets from larger corms.
All parts of the plant are poisonous and should not be ingested.
