Good caladium vendors? Plus a white caladium Q

The ones available locally are about $1.40 each. I can't see inside the packaging, either; so have no idea how big or fresh they are. That seems kind of expensive, considering I probably will not be able to carry them over. I figure if I'm going to spend that kind of money, maybe I can get better quality/larger/fresher bulbs. I'm not looked for mixed colors: I want specific ones.

But I don't want to be stuck with dried up little nubbins: THAT I can get right here! :)

So...who's good?

I had "White Christmas" last year, and loved it. I couldn't find that locally this year. But I did find another green and white one, Candidum. Does anyone know how they differ?

Hi Linnea,

I see Caladium World has 12 positive reviews (and one neutral) at 'that other' gardening site.

They appear to be in your price range and have White Christmas available yet, but you had best hurry as numerous varieties are no longer available.

Caladium World Home page. There is a link on that page to availability.
Pricing for various sizes and types.
