    Elephant Ear Colocasia -'Dragon Heart Gigante' ppaf

     

    Information below is only the potential the plant has. You will be receiving one plant between 3 and 8 inches in height shipped in a 3 deep inch pot.

     

    The Tropical Storm elephant ear rewards its grower with spectacular coloration at maturity. How long exactly? It varies with growing conditions and we can't tell you but we do know from many of our customers and our own experience that the plants will begin showing the white coloration sometimes within a few months but it can take longer. Good things come to those who wait. If you prefer not to wait some of the variegated elephant ears are recommended because they are variegated even as small plants.

    The markings start to show as it matures.
