Indoors, Caladium plants require a medium-light area with protection from the midday sun, which will scorch the leaves.
While your plant is still in its foliar glory, you will need to keep it watered and happy. Water the soil when it is dry to the touch.
Plant Specific Care
Humidity is crucial to Caladium houseplant care as the tubers are native to South American tropical forests and produce seasonal foliage during the rainy, warm season.
You should only fertilize the plant when it is actively growing during spring to late summer. In the fall and winter, no special food is necessary.
