Anyone who likes white variegated plants will have their heart set on this caladia. Caladium White Christmas gets lots of white green leaves and can develop almost completely white leaves under lots of light. The plant grows bushy and also grows up to 50cm tall. In contrast to the Caladium candidum, which looks very similar, the Caladium White Christmas has very thin parchment-like leaves which had on the one hand a lower green content with me and in addition to this still had slight pink colorations in some places.
Caladium White Christmas profile:
