Prized for its highly decorative leaves, Caladium White Christmas' (Angel Wings) is a tuberous perennial with lush, heart-shaped, silvery white leaves adorned with striking dark green veins and edges. Inconspicuous, calla-type flowers appear in summer, but they are usually hidden by the leaves. Glowing in full shade, this luminous foliage plant is terrific to add color and drama to shady borders and containers. It also makes an excellent houseplant.
Plant Care - Caladium White Christmas
Light: Place your Caladium White Christmas under bright, indirect sunlight or Deep shade with dappled sunlight. Alternatively, you may try placing the plant beside a window still that gets the morning sunlight.
Water: Allow the top surface of the soil to dry up between watering the plant. We recommend watering it once a week. The Calathea enjoys higher levels of humidity, so when the weather gets hot, give it the occasional water mist it deserves.
Fertiliser: Feed your plant with a houseplant fertiliser at half strength once every two weeks during its growing season.
Humidity Requirement: Medium to High
