Colocasia esculenta is an extraordinary architectural marvel, boasting impressive dimensions and stature, ultimately reaching heights of up to 1.5m. It produces a profusion of stunning emerald green arrow-shaped leaves, each measuring up to 60cm in length. Despite its popularity as a houseplant, Colocasia esculenta thrives when grown outdoors during the warmer summer months.

A natural shade lover, it brings a fashionable tropical flair to any dull corner and adds beauty to shaded, enclosed, or urban gardens. For indoor gardening enthusiasts, introducing this resilient, air-purifying tropical jewel can revitalize your living space. As temperatures rise, relocate your Colocasia esculenta outdoors to enliven shaded corners of your patio or balcony.

Colocasias are relatively simple to cultivate and highly versatile, thriving in various soil types. Ensure sufficient moisture during the growing period. In autumn, prior to the onset of frosts, lift the bulbs from the ground. Alternatively, if grown in containers, transfer them to a warm glasshouse. Throughout winter, it's essential to store the tubers in a dry, frost-free environment.
