Saving Caladiums

mommanature(z5)October 2, 2013

This past summer I purchased 3 bags of caladium bulbs for $1 each at Walmart. I put them in my garden and hoped for the best. They were spectacular! Now that Western New York is headed for the deep freeze, I am wondering how I can save the bulbs/corms/whatever for next year. I've already dug them out in case we get an early snow. Thanks for any help on what medium or container to keep them in.

There is a link below. Also I found this topic had been discussed some time ago on this forum.
