Caladiums also called Elephant Ear, Angel Wings or Heart of Jesus Plant are popular vibrant plants with striking arrow-shaped, paper thin and beautifully marked leaves.
There are over 1000 cultivars of Caladiums. Most Caladium cultivars grow to about 24 in. high and 24 in. wide, although there are dwarf varieties in cultivation now.
Caladiums are tropical plants native to South America and Central America and naturalized in India, parts of Africa and various tropical islands.

Generally, Caladiums thrive in medium to bright, indirect light, warm and humid conditions and moderately moist, well-drained soils.
