One of my favorite Caladiums! It has medium to large white leaves with green margins and dark red veins. It will sometimes show different leaf colorations depending on fertilizer amounts and soil type. Highly fertilized plants are more pink and red. Although this one is sun tolerant, I prefer the look in deep shade, where it seems to shine!
