Colocasia forms

  • Subject: Colocasia forms

I have been growing and working with a lot of Colocasias and I have a 
few plants that have shown to bend or break personal rules that I have 
used to ID Colocasias from other aroids. Here is a link to a great site 
for finding unusual plant photos.  The following photo is from a lady in 
Hawaii who grew out a taro plant. I am not sure if this form is common 
or if she just happened to pick a unusual form. The leaves are cut all 
the way to the stems. This is a feature I would most likely see on a 
Xanthosoma not Colocasia their are more photos of this plant shown in 
her photo slide.  I have not seen this on any other Colocasia and found 
it extremely odd.  I know IDing plants from foliage is not pure science 
but it usually gives me a idea of what the plant is and I can usually 
get a good ID or at least place the plant in the right section. 

Here is the link
