Caladium ‘Thai Beauty’ is a much sought after cultivar with stunning variegation and elegantly shaped leaves. The tear-drop shaped leaves have margins that ruffle to a point and the variegation, which appears more vibrant when grown in better light, is the gentlest mauve pink with contrasting forest green veining. In the right lighting, the leaf appears translucent.
Caladium is a genus in the Araceae family, commonly referred to as the Aroid family. Many species from the genus are native to South America, including Caladium bicolor, the original plant that many of the cultivars we see nowadays are derived from. As close relatives of Alocasias and Xanthosomas, Caladiums have the same low growing habit, staying close to the forest floor. Therefore, we recommend using our hand crafted Tropical Forest Ground Potting Mix that is specially for such terrestrial forest plants. Make sure your Caladium gets sufficient indirect light and do not wait too long to water them.
