To grow Krok Kert City Caladiums successfully:
- Light: Krok Kert City Caladiums thrive in indirect sunlight or moderate shade. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves.
- Soil: They prefer a well-draining, slightly acidic soil.
- Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Reduce watering in the fall and winter.
- Temperature: Ideal temperatures are between 70-85°F (21-29°C). They are sensitive to cold and should be kept away from drafts.
- Fertilizer: Use a balanced liquid fertilizer every couple of weeks during the growing season.
- Planting: Plant the tubers in spring, about 1-2 inches deep, with the eyes (buds) facing up.
Remember, Krok Kert City Caladiums are tropical plants and they go dormant in the winter. During this time, you can either leave the tubers in the pot and stop watering, or dig them up. Store in a dry area where temperatures do not drop below 50°F until spring.
