Plant haul

I was just looking for a small, hanging Monstera adansonii, but ended up with three gorgeous plants. From left to right: a hybrid Caladium bicolor, Monstera adansonii ‘Monkey Mask’ and a Hoya ‘Lisa’.
At least I found what I was looking for, right?
I’ve never grown Caladium before, so this will be a bit of a challenge. Caladium bulbs send out these colorful leaves every spring and summer and die off in fall. Then you never know if you killed it or if the bulb just went dormant. When repotting this plant, I found multiple bulbs in the soil. I’ve seen one bulb sold for DKK 300 ($40) in several stores and online. I bought 4 bulbs for DKK 70 ($9), so this rainy day just got a lot more colorful!
