some months ago (in Feb 2005) i bought some tubers of
a „black Taro“ on ebay.de. The seller said that this one is a giant
species….Here is a link with a photo of an adult plant from the seller:
- Can anyone tell what species it is? I thought
that it could be a cultivar or variety of Colocasia esculenta.
- The tuber sprouted well. It has produced two
shoots out of one rhizome. The only thing I wonder is that each shoot only
holds three leaves at once. When the fourth leave is developing the oldest
one dies off. Is this a sign of lack of fertilizer. When planting the
rhizome I added Osmocote (15-11-11) + trace elements into the
substrate. Two months ago I transplanted it into a huge pot (old pot was
far too small) adding Osmocote again. Should I fertilize it again?
Thanks a lot for your
