Colocasia esculenta 'Midori Sour'



I must say this can be quite confusing for beginners when looking for their difference especially when most of these types looks so similar in their coloration and type. Truth to be told, even I have found slightly irritated in considering their supposed ID should be, if their labels or in any case if this plant is not labelled - it can be anyone guess giving any fancy names which may prove futile as names and ID can just be labelled at anyone fancy.

On a serious notes - coming to facts.
Colocasia Midori Sour was sold on an expensive price in comparison to "Lemon Lime Gecko" though both look so much similar on their foliage appearance.
In my opinion, this one has lesser freckles than "Lemon Lime Gecko"
Some variants may have stronger botches and more greener on their foliage structure however, it is fairly a new plant and whether they would last in long term basis is anyone guess.

To note - the difference is this one has a different coloration on the petiole - more on a green and yellowish variegated tones. (that's it!)   In comparison to "Lemon Lime Gecko" that one has white and burgundy stripes.

Another factor is their foliage coloration do not do so well in shaded condition, you can note, the colors appears to be pale and fading in comparison to the ones that is fully exposed to sunlight.

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