<< IF they have enough 'growing season' they do fine and increase in tuber
and quantity EVERY year >>
>Hmmm...I tended to think of Caladuim as a house plant. Is that incorrect?
do know what they only lived a short while in my house before turning into a
pot of empty soil....This was when I lived in New England.
For the information of the 'Northerners', this is EXACTLY what I was
saying--- they are grown commercially here in Florida as annuals for the
Norherners, who can not/do not provide a long-enough growth period with
close to optimum conditions for tuber production! IF we want to, we
'Southerners' can and DO grow them for MANY summer seasons!!
