Taro - Colocasia esculenta 'Teacup' - PART 2


In comparison to so many Colocasia types - this one appears to be very much designed for a function rather than foliage showy display. Though it appears to be a plain green coloration with dark black stem and back veins - this one however collects water as the leaves designed in a cup shape.

The beautiful features will be in full display when it rains lightly on them and these cup like leaves does this symphony when they undo the collected water in a wavy manner pouring out the excess water one by one like a dance.

The foliage appears to be waterproof and also able to collect and store water for days - almost like a pitcher plant features.

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