My Colos grow best in muck or rather, very rich, very wet soil/compost.
Anyone got the really black and velvety one? After I moved all my surviving
rhizomes were the purple leaved and stemmed variety.

Subject:  Colocasia question

Out of curiosity, can Colocasia esculenta fontanesii be grown in water?  I
know its a taro, but I wanted to make sure before I decide to submerge some
plants in a fountain. Also, if I submerge these (they're small and would
keep them in a pot), what type of soil mix should I use in the pots?  Thank
you for all anwers!
