Plants for sale are Colocasia “Tea Cup”
As with all my plants they are grown from tissue culture to be exact disease free copies of the mother plant. Plants for sale are between 5-16″.
Colocasia ‘Tea Cup’ makes a stunning 4′ tall clump of Cup shaped leaves (glossy olive green) with a dark purple-black stem. As the leaf fills with water, the stem gives enough for the leaf to dump out its catch before refilling. Colocasia ‘Tea Cup’ sends out above-ground runners…but only in the fall. This is just one of those plants that’s architectural form will blow you away.
We recommend using Bio Spectrum organic fertilizer located in our store. Ships to the continental United States only.
