Caladium, Elephant Ears and its kind


These are not easy ones to keep in the garden
Not for a long-term factor as they do go dormant time to time and sometimes disappear totally for a year.


I think I lost few species,
So much so - I just left it as it is - if it appears, I celebrate the joys of colours.
If not.. then I don't bother much as I know some other plant is growing and doing well in the pot where these tubers are sleeping dead.


But still,
I enjoys the streaks, stripes, spots and patterns these leaves presents.
Somehow - like dumbcane leaves - they chart a map of somekind..
Like a hidden map, or a message...
Or perhaps some measure of beauty that needs to be discovered..
 still wonder - if any had discovered and able to explain their wonder.






Unlike Caladium, Elephant Ears are more hardy and don't go dormant.
But the downside is that they don't hold interesting marking like their cousin.

Regardless,
They measure up with a bigger side and strike the awesome..
Hardy as ever - some of these are able to stand inside stagnant water.
And that is truly like an elephant.
