Plant care

Colocasia esculenta likes to be grown in extremely wet potting compound or to be standing in water. It will happily do this in winter. The parts of the plant above ground will then die off. The leaves need at least 15 degrees Celsius in order to survive. Colocasia esculenta likes clay-rich soil.
