Plant them right side up 2" deep in a bright and warm spot, and keep the soil moist. Keep out of direct sunlight, and maintain temperatures of at least 70F(no more than 90F). The warmer it is, the faster the bulbs will sprout. Caladiums will sprout anytime from a week to a month. Fertilize (ideally with bonemeal) ~1 a month.
These bulbs are for the 2024 growing season.
Bulbs sprouted in the bag. Plant grew quickly. Stunning foliage.
I bought my caladium bulbs 11/18, they were delivered 11/22, and I potted/planted them 11/23. I kept the soil very moist and they slept under a regular grow light for a few days until I got a full spectrum light. My first bulb sprouted 12/8 and now all of the rest are following suit. The first pot has these beautiful pinkish/red and green leaves. They look absolutely amazing! Im obsessed!
Bulbs came in good shape
So far so good with shipping delivery and packaging I planted them last week and hoping to see a bloom soon
Only reason for 4 stars, is I'm waiting for some sprouts from my bulbs. Listing was for bulbs, I got 5 so that was awesome! I have 1 of the 5 starting to sprout, waiting on the others. I have faith though, it hasn't been much more than a week! Cannot wait to see what I get.

how long does it take for the seeds to germinate?
Houseplant seeds take longer than most seeds to germinate, the average time for germination is 2-3 weeks. If you're curious about the sprouting time for a specific seed variety, you can find that information in the "about the seeds" tab on each product page.

All of our orders come with a basic starter guide for you to follow, but our seed guide here goes in much more detail and also offers alternative seed starter methods.
