Caladium tubers can be planted directly into ground beds after danger of frost is past. They should be planted the last part of February in south Florida, the middle of April in the central peninsula, and the first of May in the northern peninsula and panhandle. Tubers should be planted two inches (5 cm) deep and 18 inches (45 cm) apart with growing points facing upward. Firm the soil around them when planting to prevent the formation of air pockets between the tuber and the soil.
