  Caladium humboldtii
From: Paul Resslar <presslar at vwc.edu> on 1997.02.02 at 18:02:49(284)
Dear caladium growers:

I was given some plants of Caladium humboldtii this summer. They have
been in the greenhouse and have finally gone dormant, and I need some
advise. Seven small tubers were removed from the pot and cleaned of all
soil. I would like to increase the number of plants next year. Is it safe
to cut the tubers into pieces? Each piece having a bud. The pieces would be
very tiny, and I am afraid they would dry to nothing. Or should I just
replant them several inches apart and let nature take its course? Is there
a place where I can buy some more of these? In advance, thanks for any help.
