Homeowner Growing Tips: Caladiums are generally adaptable as houseplants where they prefer bright light or a sunny window.

    After the first one shipped was lost by the carrier, I emailed Romence, they responded immediately, shipped a replacement, it arrived and was planted immediately and is growing beautifully. Putting out new leaves on a regular basis. Very happy with the plant and with the seller!!!!!
