The Best Way to Take Care of Your Caladium

The Best Way to Take Care of Your Caladium


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


  1. Pour water over the soil, using, for example, a watering can or put the plant directly under a tap

  2. Continue adding water to the pot until it starts to run out from the drainage holes

  3. 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

  4. If you watered under a tap, make sure that water has stopped running out from the bottom before putting it back
