Caladium varieties and information here.

Candidum Senior Caladiums

White leaves with green-netted venation.  Makes the fullest and most uniform white pot plant of any variety.  Not very sun tolerant.  Dominant eye removal only necessary when bulb has two or less dominant bud (s).  If bulbs have multiple dominant eyes (3 or more) plant as is.  As a result of the Classic Caladium’s certification program Candidum Junior is now as vigorous as Candidum however without the greening problem of Candidum, we have therefore renamed it “Candidum Senior”.
