Does anyone know the name of this caladium and where to find it? I tried an image search app with no luck. Thanks.

It may be one of the Thailand varieties. When googling I found one called 'New Wave', described as florescent yellow and pink but not much information on it.

Wonder why no one is selling it. Can't be that hard to propagate can it? Looks like it would sell like hotcakes. Blinking

It does look like it would be a very popular Caladium!

I found it on Pinterest. Don't have link now but it shows up on a few sites when subjected to a reverse image search. Never have seen cultivar name though.

I found that same image on pinterest leading to Thai site.
agristarts lists it but does not have the pic, also saw ebay entry (sold already).
it's patented as 'New Wave'.

That is a Thai caladium
If you are lucky, the bulb might be the size of a quarter. That is a "HUGE" Thai bulb!!!
Most of them produce bulbs about the size of a nickle or smaller. You would have to be Bill Gates to have a mass planting of them.
I've seen This bulbs that were fully mature and the size of a dime. The punch they put out is spectacular though!!!
