  Caladium Sources?

Hello to all, there is a Caladium grower near by who raises a number of
varieties. One is a green strap leaf that is wonderful but has little
commercial market. It is probably C. schonbergki 'Changur'. I can get
these tubers at good price if anyone wants some. I can also get the
common names. Tom Croat grew a bunch in St. Louis last year and maybe he
will let the list know how they fared.

Send me your wishes. I am going to visit the grower this week and will
post the plant names and prices when I return. If you will let me know
that you might want some tubers, I can see what kind of deal he will give us.

Dick: All of the forms you sent me last year did well, depending on the
soil where I put them. Those in rich deep soil in shadier areas did
better. I would be interested in getting more and will await your
response. Is it time for me to do the operation on the tubers. You
said that I should cut them during the winter but I have forgotten the
details. I must try to find the reprint that you sent me.

Note: this is a very old post, so no reply function is available.
