Caladium (Xanthosoma) lindelii - Magnificum

Latin Name: Caladium lindelii
Plant height - Pot width

An exceptionally rare and beautiful gem from the floors of distant jungles, with intense white veins on beautifully textured jade leaves. 

Something of a sticking point for classification, where it used to be part of the Xanthosoma family but was later reallocated into the Caladium genus. 

An unusual find, with some challenging characteristics. But meet its needs and eventually enormous leaves of up to 70cm long can be achieved, with the plant reaching an ultimate height of over a metre (even larger if kept in ideal conditions like a heated greenhouse.)
