One of my grower friends still has a BUNCH of Mixed Strap Leaf Caladium bulbs in his barn. They are absolutely awesome bulbs too!!
Everything from Jumbo's to small Grade #3. There are lots and lots of Nice Jumbo's and Grade #1 bulbs.
He offered me a deal the other day that was hard for me to pass up. So, I am going to in turn offer them to my fellow members here on ATP for the Cheapest Price of the season. I tip my hat to you.
Hurray! Hurray! Right now is the PERFECT time to plant Caladiums!! Hurray! Hurray!
Yes, you could have planted them earlier in most places but with temperatures continuing to climb you are going to see their spectacular leaves in No Time!!!
Here in the South there's a good chance you'd have a nice pot by the 4th of July.

So here's the deal.
I am going to offer the Regional Flat Rate Box "A" for $20.00 + shipping or the "B" box for $30.00 + shipping
If you email me your Zip Code I will reply with the cost to ship box. Please email me at: Bill@CaladiumBulbs4Less.com
You can tree mail me but emails make it A LOT easier for me to keep track of the different promotions I may be running.
I can tell you that you guys always get the best deals posted!! Thumbs up
I "AM NOT" looking to make money on shipping, I just can't have it costing me anything!!
These are the boxes I use for shipping our 5 Lb(A box) or 10 Lb(B box) assortments. I'm going to fill them to capacity so the boxes are going to be even heavier!!
If you'd like even more, I can use UPS for Larger quantities. I will offer boxes that have at least 20 Lbs of bulbs in it for $2.50 a pound + shipping(I will use UPS Ground shipping)
Please Don't ask me how many bulbs per pound. That is Impossible to answer!!! The Jumbo's aren't light... All I know is you'll be receiving the Nicest Caladium Bulbs available!!!
You'll be receiving Florida Sweetheart, Gingerland, White Wing, Lance Whorton, Miss Muffet, Red Ruffle and a few more. The Strap Leaf caladiums do not get as tall as the Fancy Leaf varieties do. They'll look Outstanding planted in nice containers, hanging baskets or even straight in to the ground.

Wow! I ordered a 10 lb. box of strap caladiums Monday, the 22nd. They were shipped at 3 PM that afternoon. They were on my front porch today, the 24th, at 3 PM! I opened the box and they are beautiful healthy bulbs.
What outstanding service! Thanks, Bill!

I have a couple of questions.

Will the bulbs be labeled as to variety?

It's too cold to have them stay outside here in the winter. Do you think they would be OK in the basement at about 70* during the cold times?

Thanks.
Leslie

Leslie, in your climate you will have to dig Caladium bulbs to store over winter; just be sure to remove all leaves and dry the bulbs thoroughly before storing. You can dry them by placing them on wads of paper towels for a few days, turning them every so often to be sure the entire bulb dries, or turn a fan on them to get them dry. Caladiums love warm temperatures so if your basement is not damp and the temp stays at a constant of @ 70ยบ and you can provide good ventilation, they should be fine!

No, the bulbs are not labeled by variety. The only thing I do know is that they are all strap leaf varieties. There are not any of the fancy leaf(the most common ones) varieties in mix.
Only God knows which ones are which and he won't share that info with me. I can tell you they are Really Nice bulbs!! Some of the Jumbo's are Really, Really nice.....lol...
