I kept my caladium bulbs in their respective pots thru the winter. As of yet, no sign of caladium sprouts.

Anyone in higher zones such as mine seeing caladium sprouts?

Needless to say, I am impatiently awaiting their presence. laugh flw

Have you watered the pots yet...
or are they still dry and you're waiting for sprouts/??

*I don't grow caladiums, but I do what sounds like what you did for the caladiums... for my dahlia's...

And mine are dry soil.. and I wait a bit,
then in March I usually start watering the pot,
but not alot, just enough to wake the bulbs up..

Hi weezie wavey

Thanks for your tip!

Thru winter, I barely sprinkled the caladium pots. I just started watering the soil a few days ago so I'm hoping I see something sometime soon. wink

Caladiums need really warm soil to get growing, so hopefully they'll be up soon.

I left mine in the pot. I will put them in the window and see if that helps get them going. Thanks for the tip.

Mine bloomed one year and it had a lemon fragrance.
