Caladium leaves are ideal in vases and cut flower arrangements. Their beautiful color will typically last for 2-3 weeks in a vase. We recommend cutting the leaves at least 12-24 hours prior using them. Cut them near the bottom of the stem and immediately place the stems in water.
They will go through a wilt stage in the first few hours. Just ignore them as they will soon perk up and be as beautiful as ever. You can arrange caladiums alone in a vase or with other flowers and greenery. Caladium should not be put into coolers with other floral arrangements at temperatures less than 60⁰ F.
