I have a question about the Colocasia"Black Magic" - mine is just
about to open it's first flower. Any chance of seed production? Anyone have
a good description of the flower. Not yet open, but the colors are pretty
Advice and suggestions, please.

It may be self pollenating, but if you have more than one flower, collect
pollen from the oldest (with a wet paint brush) then cut the side off a new
but mature flower JUST starting to open, and put the pollen on to the female
portion of the spadix of the new flower at it`s lower end. Wrap the flower
in plastic wrap or just put a little fungicidal power on the edge of the cut
(but this may not be necessary), then wait and see!!
