The Prettiest Caladium Varieties 2023
Caladiums are the perfect plants to brighten up every room. They are tropical plants and originate from Central and Southern America, particularly Brazil and the Amazon. Caladiums are beautiful plants that grow from bulbs. Once they ‘pop’ out, they are sure to impress you with their beautiful and colourful leaves. With over a hundred varieties, coloured veins, diverse edges and textures, the Caladium is a real eye-catcher that will fit in every interior. In some countries you can spot Caladiums in gardens, but you can also grow your Caladium indoors. Do you want to know how?
