Thai Giant size, it's flag leaf, a Colocasia tuber, & forum question
Posted by jay-mid-md on 7/12/2017, 10:24 pm
Colocasia Gigantea 'Thailand Giant' (AKA: Leucocasia gigantea) leaf with a yard stick on it. The length is 2" shy of 4ft. After these leaves unfurl, they continue to widen for about 7 days:
Colocasia Gigantea 'Thailand Giant' flag leaf. With all my other Colocasias and Alocasias, the flag leaves were immediately followed by a flower. This is my first season with this variety. But here a leaf is clearly shown following it:
Colocasia Esculenta 'Black Magic' tuber sending out a leaf. I can't stop thinking of 'Jack and the Bean Stalk' when I look at it:
Is there an Aroid (namely Alocasia, Colocasia, Caladium) forum that is as happenin' as this forum? I like this one. I've searched several times. The only ones I've found have posting replies in the neighborhood of weeks, months, or not at all. I don't want to post a gardening question and then not get a reply until I've forgotten my password.
