If Caladiums are kept as an indoor plant during the winter, will they still thrive outdoors through the summer?

Caladium tubers (like most tubers and bulbs) require a yearly rest period at some time during the winter months. When the foliage starts looking a little funky, stop watering until all the leaves have died back. Remove the shriveled foliage and store the tubers (in their pot or loose in vermiculite) in a cool area that is 50-60 degrees for a month or two.
Repot in the Spring or plant them back in the garden after the soil warms
