My caladium's gonna get chilled

Jen26(USDA zone 6/MO)May 10, 2004

I have to admit it -- I put my caladium in the ground when I KNEW it would get chilly again. Now we have nighttime lows in the 50's predicted. I've never grown caladium before, what can I expect when they get too cool?? I heard they don't like temps under 65. Thanks.

It'll probably go dormant until it warms up again!
