Red veins and amazing edges. This Caladium looks translucent but is not.
Got it in a mix from a large grower. (I did email them to ask; thought I would try here to get a quicker answer.)
Thanks for your help.

Think it might be this one? It gets brighter pink in some sun but would be pale pink like yours in a shady spot.

That's got to be correct. The grower does list it with a picture that really doesn't look quite like this, so it throw me. And based on a bio the developer works with them. Thanks very much for your help.
And yes, it is in the shade...gee, you're good.
