The prettiest Caladium varieties in 2024

If you are on the hunt for a tropical beauty that comes in lots of colours and patterns, you have found the plant family for you! The Cladium are known for their bright foliage, which is almost see through due to how thin the leaves are. Pretty cool, if you ask us! The Caladium goes through a life cycle throughout the year, which is so special to witness. They grow from tubers, which you can grow yourself from scratch at home. Once you manage to get the first growth from your tuber, you will feel like a true plant wizard! So if you are curious to see some pretty Caladium varieties, here we have 7 gorgeous varieties for you! Let’s see what the Caladium foliage realm has to offer us. :)

Caladium Miss Muffet

We start off this list with a speckled beauty, Caladium Miss Muffet. This Caladium species has a soft green base, which is embellished with lots of pink or fuschia speckles. The veins on the leaves are a light pink, so you can imagine that it's quite the colour explosion, exactly what we love about the Caladiums!
