PS. A 'yautia' tuber from a local supermarket has been potted up and is
sprouting. Is this Xanthosoma violacea?<<

'Yautia' comes in THREE colors, the 'lilac' is X. violacium, the 'blanca' or
white is X. sagitifolium, and the 'amarillo' or yellow is X. atrovirens

X. atro. has a almost balck skinned, very hairy (rooty?) rhi. w/ a yellow
