BEFORE YOU WATER
Caladiums need a lot of water during their growth period, but almost nothing at all from autumn to spring (during its dormant stage).
From when the leaves occur in spring until autumn: keep the soil just slightly moist (but not wet) all the time.
When the leaves begin to wither in autumn: Stop watering (you’ll get notified once or twice during the winter to water, but you can also skip it completely).
If the soil is too wet - snooze this action, we will remind you again in 2 days.
“Even if Caladiums like water, they need excellent drainage, so make sure that the soil and the pot help excess water to run out. ” — PLANTA PRO TIP
WATER OVER THE SOIL
Pour water over the soil, using, for example, a watering can or put the plant directly under a tap
Continue adding water to the pot until it starts to run out from the drainage holes
If you have a tray under the pot when watering, make sure you remove all the collected water afterwards - never let your plant sit in water
If you watered under a tap, make sure that water has stopped running out from the bottom before putting it back
