I've seen some pretty ones on the other site but with everyone talking about the bulbs being so tiny Bill can't see spending money on those I'm spoiled by your bulbs and BTW I'm wanting to add to my order you'll be hearing from me in the next couple of days lol My neighbor just wants to order a few she usually just waits for me to give her some Hurray! There will be more for me this year Smiling

Are those Thai in the picture Bill?

Lea,

Yes, that is a Thai variety. I can't remember the name though. Even if I did, I know I can't pronounce it...lol...
Here's another from my collection from last year. At last count I had about 85 different varieties growing in my backyard with 25 of them being different Thai's
You'd have to have Bill Gates kind of money to do your landscape with them. All of mine are in pots.

They are pretty but not enough leaves for me I like the ones you send and getting those jumbo bulbs for this year I'm really looking forward to those! I'm a firm believer you get what you pay for!

Last year was your first year to have them wasn't it? Seems like I remember you saying that.

I really don't think I've seen any Thai bulbs around here to see what they look like I just remember eveyone talking about how small they were last year. I have checked bulbs out at HD before and couldn't believe how small the bulbs were to caladiums like you sell they were cheaper yes but I was wondering how many leaves I would get out of them Confused

To get an idea on how big a Thai Caladium bulb is, Look at your thumb nail. That would be a BIG bulb...lol... The Thai Beauty makes the biggest bulb of ALL the different Thai's. They're about as big as one of our small Grade #3 bulbs
