What is this Gorgeous HousePlant?

What is this gorgeous houseplant my boss gave me for my birthday. There was no name on it?? How do I care for it? Thanks, Monica

Hi Monica,


Your plant is called a Blushing Bride Caladium. The picture you sent was a little blurred so I replaced it with a clearer one taken at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. Caladiums are not easy to care for, but they certainly are beautiful. Caladiums grow from tubers which are like bulbs. You can read all about Caladiums and how to care for them in the Popular HousePlant section of the website.
