Bun Long Elephant Ear - Colocasia esculenta
The Bun Long Colocasia not only rewards you with beauty, but it's also edible. This variety is often used in Hawaiian and Chinese cooking. Grow a Bun Long and you can try a new recipe, like poi, taro chips, or Chinese bubble tea. If your plant doesn't look just like the picture, give it a little time to grow up. Elephant ears' attributes become even more defined when they mature.
