Caladium 'Strawberry Star'
Caladium 'Strawberry Star' (XS)
A spectacular tropical plant with white, almost translucent leaves with beautiful strawberry red markings, the 'Strawberry Star' is a must have rare plant for any collector. Our plants have been grown from tissue culture and are young and healthy.
Native to South America, Caladiums were discovered in the 1500's by the Spanish explorers for their stunning leaves. They come in a myriad of stunning patterns and colours and are highly collected around the world. The name Caladium, comes from the South American Indian term 'kelady' meaning 'unknown'.
Keep well watered and soil moist at all times. Best in bright, warm space but can also tolerate morning and evening sun, just avoid harsh midday sunlight. If this environment can be maintained then your 'Strawberry Star' can remain active all year long, otherwise during cooler months your plant may go dormant and slowly die back until Spring. As soon as the leaves begin to wilt, reduce water to a few sips every few weeks or remove from soil and water and keep between 13-16 degrees and replant in Spring.
