 CARE AND GROWING TIPS:

Foliage   /  Indoor Plant

Exposure
All caladiums love filtered sunlight and shade. Some newer selections can take more sun.

Prefer warm & humid condition.

Water
Prefer much water and mist frequently throughout growing season.

Soil
Rich, well-drained potting mix.

Plant your Caladium lindenii in fertile, moist, but well-drained soil that is slightly acidic.(eg., loam potting soil)

Loam is a soil comprised of almost equal amounts of sand and silt and a little less clay. Sand particles are the largest component. Sand does not hold onto moisture, but it provides good aeration and drainage--ideal for gardening.

Fertilizer
Heavy feeder.

Keep plant in top form by feeding the plants every few weeks throughout growing season with a diluted solution of liquid fertilizer or sprinkling solid fertilizer onto soil.

REASONS YOUR CALADIUM MAY NOT BE DOING WELL:

You’re not watering it enough.

It’s not getting enough light.

It’s planted in the wrong soil mix.

There’s not enough humidity.
