Hi Donna- I'm way up on the OK line west of Texarkana- I think Tomball is getting to be like downtown Houston now- I get these at Kroger's in Shreveport, LA- They only get one shipment a year- once they're gone that's it-The ones from aroid dealers seem to be clones selected for best stem color, but the ones from the grocery are really vigorous and a cheap thrill if you just keep them well watered- I'm always on the lookout for ones with a different skin color-I have a lot of unidentifiable oddballs now- I think your opportunities are better in the Asian markets of Houston ( east side of the I-10 loop)-
Pineapple express from Baja last 2 weeks now Arctic express from Canada this week - Yup! This is Texas :-)

Well, you're in the U.K. and I'm in Texas, but here, this would most
be Xanthosoma violaceum- Supermarket chains send in crates of these and
Colocasias around Easter even though the local produce people have no idea

Steve, where in Texas are you? I'm just northwest of Houston near Tomball.
I'm getting curious about going on a supermarket "collecting trip" - I'll
report back - there are several Asian grocery stores near me.
