Caladium Pink Beauty

Caladium I like the article

Fertilize Caladium
In the spring letís use a fertilizer every 15-20 days, melting it in the water which we use to irrigate; we can choose a fertilizer for flowering plants or green plants, rich with nitrogen and potassium to favour a balanced development of the new vegetation. Otherwise we can, if we want to, use a slow release fertilizer, to add to the soil, every 3-4 months.

Cultivation Caladium
The Caladium develops like a perennial herb. This plant in the winter assumes a greenpink colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 90 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub.

Water CaladiumTenere Umido
To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer. The Caladium Needs regular watering, but we suggest letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; let's take action every 1-2 weeks , remembering to water the substratum well with 2-3 glasses of water .

Pests Caladium
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Mold Caladium
These plants need to be grown in a soil which isnít too drained. Every 2-3 years we should change the soil and place the plant in a larger container.
