The leaves grow to about 12 to 15 cm long and is heart shaped and deep violet with emerald veins. The colour gets more intense when the leaf matures.Both the both the back and the front of the leaves are very lustrous. We love the plant with a bit of light at night, to see the real beauty of this plant ( see picture).

Mature tubers offered.
Colocasias are fairly easy to grow plants and very adaptaple to most soils. Lots of watering required to get the foliage to grow bigger. The compost needs to be well drained if grown in colder climates. Also make good pot plants.
