Live in Wisconsin and planted Caladium bulbs (purchased in Florida) in containers. Cannot find any information as to when they should start to grow. Any help would be appreciated.

If they were planted outside, they likely did not survive the winter. They are only hardy to zone 10 and will die elsewhere in the winter outside. If they were brought inside for the winter, you can plant or put them back outdoors when the weather stays consistently above 50 F. They will start to sprout when they are placed somewhere that is above 50 F and they get regular water.
