Thanks for posting. I knew they might bloom, but have never seen one despite having had a lot of caladiums.

The flower only lasts a few days. Glad you caught it!

I quite often see a bloom, but it's usually after I've forgotten to water them for a few days. They do like lots of water to grow lush foliage. Mulch would help to keep the roots cooler and more moist, too.
