Colocasia esculenta 'Morning Dew'


Colocasia esculenta‘Morning Dew ’ is actually a patent works from Hawaii's Dr. John Cho works which of a US origin. 

This particular hybrid Colocasia appears to have similar characteristics like a common 'Lime Gecko" however has a darker burgundy stem coloration. The special features are the foliage appearance where the green leaves has speckles of golden blotches with dark and lime green tones. The stem however have the black steaks with striped like appearance.

Also these plants are fairly new in the plant market currently and sold for premium prices however due to a flood in the market - these types are facing major price drop, something to be expected as there will always be ups and down when it comes to popular plants and a huge supply over demand.

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


Another factor which I had found is that the older spend leaves are given a clean cut as so to promote a new large bigger leaf formation. Also a good watering and feeding to support a well balanced growth.
