Vegetable gardens and plants in containers will thrive with supplemental irrigation of one inch 2-3 times per week during the growing season under average climate conditions in clay soil if that amount of moisture has not been received.
Caladium bulbs are tropical plants grown for their summer foliage, however they do send up an arum type flower (a member of the Araceae family). Foliage comes in many different variegation patterns in red, pink and white. Plant bulbs after May 1st, only about 3 inch deep. Caladiums like it hot and moist. Complete shade works OK, or morning sun only. For larger leaves. keep the bed or pot well moist, especially during bulb germination. High water use plants can be used for small areas of the landscape or pots.
Large leaves on upright stems. Colocasia leaves point downward (Alocasia leaves point upward).
