Q.Ok To Move A Sprouting Caladium?

Zone 92028 | rtkidpower added on June 6, 2020 | Answered

My caladiums are coming up beautifully but their location is unbalanced in the pot. Is it OK to move them a few inches when they are already leafing. At what stage can I move them? Please see photo. Thank you so much for your help!

No, moving them for something as little as that will do much more damage than good. Eventually, the pot will become too crowded, which at that time will be when you will transplant, divide, or do other yearly maintenance.

I would let it continue on until it, absolutely, needs to be moved.
