The Q&A Archives: Starting Caldium Indoors

Question: I planted some caladium bulbs in separate pots and keep them indoors. How long do you think it will take them to start growing? They have been in the pots for about three weeks.

Answer: They grow most quickly when you provide bottom heat to the pots (75-80F), and keep soil moist. They should start growing soon after you apply this treatment. Just a thought - did you plant them with the knobby side of the tuber up? And they need only be a couple inches below the soil surface. Hope this helps!
