Caladiums - Knowledgebase Question

Question by sandrasmith6

I planted my caladiums about a month ago, some in the ground and some in pots. I don't really remember the variety but they are white and pinks or reds. Only one of the pots is showing signs of little shoots sprouting up. I used plenty of blood meal as I couldn't find bone meal. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Hmmm.. by now they should all have sprouted. I wonder if you planted them too deeply? It might be worth digging them up to see. Or you can wait patiently for another two weeks. If nothing appears, dig them up and inspect them. They may have rotted or insect pests may have feasted on them. Hope the problem is weather related rather than pest related!
