Wintering Over Caladium in Pot, in Garage

I wintered over caladium bulbs in my garage and did not water them. They are in the original pot with potting soil. Will they come up this year or did I ruin them? I am in Zone 6.

They typically need to be watered a few times over the winter if left in the soil, but there may have been enough moisture in the soil for them to survive. If you take one of them out of the soil and squeeze it, it should feel firm. This means that they have survived the winter. If they are soft, they have died.
