Outdoors, White Wonder Caladium should be planted only after the soil is 70 degrees F or more or they will rot or be stunted. Since they are grown for foliage, no deadheading is necessary. Heart to Heart White Wonder needs only 1/4th the amount of fertilizer you would give following annuals every week or two weeks. Always keep the soil moist. If the plants dry out, they drop their leaves.
Indoors, water and fertilize as you would outdoors. Place the Heart to Heart White Wonder in a sunny window or in bright light. To keep the area humid, mist the plant regularly or place a saucer that is full of pebbles under the plant. Fill the pebble tray with water that is less than the top of the pebbles. As the water evaporates, it creates a humid atmosphere around the plant. Fill the tray when it gets low.
Heart to Heart White Wonder is a perennial in hot climates. It will die off during the winter in cooler climates unless moved inside until the outside soil warms up. Heart to Heart White Wonder is toxic to dogs, cats, and horses. Take your animal to the veterinarian if it eats this plant.
