Caladium “Candidum”

Caladium candidum is one of the white, green species. The leaves took a while to fully develop on my bulb. So at first there were only very small, green leaves on the plant and only the later leaves developed the typical coloration. In general, the Caladium candidum can reach a height of about 50cm and grows rather bushy.
