How to pot your bulb
Caladiums will be happy in all purpose potting mix. Fill your pot up 2/3rds of soil. Then place the bulb (right side up) onto the soil, cover the bulb with soil until the pot is full.
Give the bulb a good amount of water. Place your potted bulb in a spot with enough warmth and light. At the stage of germination you can put it in a south facing window or greenhouse.
When to pot your bulb
Caladiums are tropical plants and enjoy the warmth. Creating a warm environment is key in letting your bulbs sprout. If you put your bulbs in a greenhouse you can start potting in early spring (March/April). If not wait until the temperatures are a bit higher (late April/May). Depending on the conditions it can take 4-10 weeks for your bulb to sprout.
