Q.Will My Caladium Bulbs Grow?

Paula added on April 2, 2011 | Answered

Hi, I bought a lot of caladiums last fall on sale, allowed the soil in the pots to dry out, and left the caladiums in their pots, which I stored in my unheated garage. What are the chances that with sun and water the bulbs will produce new plants?
Thanks very much,

As long as the unheated garage did not get below 20F, they will come back. Even if the garage did get below this, if they were against a wall, particularly a wall against the house, they still have a good chance of coming back.

You can dig out one of the bulbs and give it a squeeze. If it is firm, it is still alive and will regrow.
