  Re: Caladium bulbs shrinking ?

Dear All,

I do not think that ALL commercial Caladium tubers from the Sebring area are
infected with this virus---I purchased some this year, among them are a new
variety 'Florida Sweetheart', it looks like a hybrid with C. bicolor and C.
schomburgkii parentage, a BRIGHT deep pink with a green border. Out of
this world!!! I also got a few of the older type cultivars, and all have
come up to be magnificent plants, and I warrant that they will have doubled
(at least!) in both tuber size and quantity by the end of this growing
No doubt that there is the virus in SOME collections and cultivars, but
certainly not all!
