Caladium plants after a year

Previous year during May, I posted about my Caladium collection. The plants are back to life this year, and I love them. I had bought the bulbs from Indo-American Seeds, Bangalore. The collection has increased by one new variety - first photo from the left, first row in the photo-collage, which is available at the following location:

These plants grew in several containers, sharing the space with other plants. I replanted them in separate containers, and was also pleased to see newer bulbs. For the next two months or so, these plants will flaunt its leaves and colors. Now, these plants sit in a row like good children. :-)
