The Q&A Archives: Saving Caladium

Question: Can Caladium bulbs be harvested from this years garden and planted again in the Spring and how should they be stored?

Answer: You can certainly save these from year to year. Once a frost has killed the tops, dig them up and allow them to dry. Pack them in a paper (not plastic) bag or cardboard box with peat moss, sand or similar material and store them in a dry place at about 50 degrees until spring. Replant them when the soil is warm and there is no danger of frost, or start them a bit earlier in pots indoors.
