Re: Caladium tubers

Hi Les,  there are many sizes of tubers and # 2 are from 1-2 inches in
diameter depending upon the cultivar.  Some have bigger tubers than others
before they pup off.  Anything small is not useful in the commercial sales
side so they are planted back out into the fields.  The ones I have gotten
in the past have performed quite well and everyone has been very pleased as
far as I can tell.

I will not ship until the temperatures in each area and above freezing so
some will go out now and other not for maybe 6 weeks.  I can hold them
without any problem and will let you know when they are ready to send and
what the postage will be.  I will let you know when they are in the mail.
Hope this is ok and answers all your questions.
