Mine is huge and I really need to get it out of the pot and divide it. Not everyone wants such a common plant. But I may have some at the swaps as I don't know what else to do with it. I did get a variegated variety recently but it isn't large enough to share yet.

Today I realized I have no plan yet for a potted plant by my mailbox this year. last year the wing begonia from Gita did not like it out there. Its in shade all day but I guess the late day sun was too hot in summer for it.The leaves were dark and lost those white spots- just didn't look happy.

Sally do you use water crystals in your potting mix? Maybe a little to dry for them and a moister pot would help.

My one planter on the front walk was always so dry. Everything in it always burned despite the water crystals and twice daily watering. I will have to think of what to use in the pots in front of this house. It's an unshaded southeast exposure.

It was a very discouraging gardening year. This year must surely be better. I enjoyed the cooler temps this spring. The bulb displays are lasting longer and the plants seem better off for it.

When should I pot my lone little caladium bulb left from last year?

I had a banana last year, way too big to bring in anymore. I cut it off and planted the main trunk back in the garden and covered with leaves. Two smaller ones I cut off and wrapped in paper and stored in the basement. None survived, all rotten. Oh well, live and learn kind of thing.

That's a shame Sally. I remember when you were trying to decide how to store them in the fall. Sad

You can pot that caladium now. Just cover it if it looks like the night will get very cool.

I 'say' I don't care but I kinda did want that huge banana back in the corner, It looked fun and exotic. It'll be replaced by red castors though (thx Holly)

OK thx, caladium here we go.

I lost my Siam Ruby Banana, too. It didn't overwinter well. I really think it was on the way out before I brought it inside and it just seemed to keep going down hill.
Sally I might have some caladium bulbs to bring to the swap. I will let you know. I have some for Stormy. They should be here any day now and when I get done dividing them up I will know what I have left to give out.

That's a shame Holly. Those red bananas are beautiful. It's like losing a buddy. I miss my Begonias and Clivias.

Too bad Holly. But my banana was total mite food when I overwintered it inside previously. and ugly too, to be honest, with 2-3 big leaves sticking out . But there just may be one at Lowe's clearance this year LOL.
I can't get too sad about losing my Banana when so many great free plants come my way with my garden buddies. This one actually was a bonus thrown in when Susan51 sent me my first Plumeria stick. Double freebie.

Spare caladiums would be awesome but I don't want to be piggy! They could be just the thing for my mailbox pot. They did well there a couple years ago. I had pink ones, and a few pink naked lady bulbs in there and they bloomed and accidentally looked great together! Meaning, no intelligent design on MY part!

Holly, I took a peek at the first box of tubers that I have in the garage. This is the first year that I stored them wrapped in damp newspaper and then tied into plastic bags. The top box looked great. Last I lost 4 boxes of dried up stuff packed in peat moss and/or wrapped in newspaper only.

Look at this bag of geraniums that I had forgotten and found down in my basement the other day. They were down there in that freezing unheated house all winter!!

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Get them potted up Thumbs up
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
