Comments: Does moderately well in sunny areas. Tuber sizes sold as mammoth, jumbo, No. l, No. 2, and No. 3. Leaves of caladiums are much larger during the summers with frequent rains. To encourage more leaf production during midsummer, remove flowers which appear on stalks that are often nearly concealed within the foliage mass.
