Colocasia esculenta ' Black Magic' Variegated


Often confused with the common "Black Magic" variety however it is now identified as Black Magic variegated - very much earlier it was known as "Black Marble" The characteristics are very much similar except this one has blotches were the blacks and the green doesn't mix.

Not so much in the popular list as the "Black Magic" steal the show and rather perhaps still appears to be more affordable and widely in circulation. The Variegated version is very much like an acquired taste - whether it would be added as a collector's list if there is a die-hard fan for this particular breed.

I must say, in the listing, at most, people are fine to collect it if is offered as a free plant or an exchange for another common type of Colocasia among gardeners but I highly doubt anyone would be willing to spend a considerable amount of money for this one - even though it might be rare.

Plant Care & Cultivation is very much similar like most of the Colocasia species.
