Large, heart-shaped leaves grow from a cluster of stalks that form a bulb underground. The leaves have a mottled pattern of dark green and lime green or white with mixed flecks of green and white occuring across the leaf's surface.
Special Care Instructions

This plant thrives in high humidity, so provide either a humidifier or pebble tray if the home is especially dry. Use well-draining soil mix and only allow the top layer of soil to dry out between waterings. Keep near an East or South facing window and keep out of direct sun rays to avoid burning the leaves. 

Side Notes

This plant was reclassified in 2009 to be in the Caladium family.
