Answer: You were wise to take your Caladium indoors when the weather began to get cold. Caladiums need daytime temperatures of 70F degrees and nighttime temperatures slightly lower, but never below 60F degrees. Your plant is growing from a tuberous root and the leaves will die back in the early winter. At that time, the tuber will need to rest before sprouting new leaves. When the leaves yellow and die, stop watering and put the pot in a cool (60F) area. You can store the tuber in the pot, or dig it up and store it in dry peatmoss. In the spring, replant the tuber in fresh potting soil and begin watering. It will be happy in a bright window, or outdoors in a shady spot. Don't let direct sunlight reach the leaves or they will shrivel up.
