Colocasia esculenta 'Cintho Mojito' (Taro) - 2 plants/pot
Colocasia esculenta 'Cintho Mojito' - vertical growing plant with large, variegated, heart-shaped leaves. The petiole is also interesting, with dark purple longitudinal stripes that fade to pink. 'Mojito' is a natural mutation of the variety Colocasia esculenta 'Midnight', discovered and selected by Ty Ritchard Strode in a greenhouse in Apopka, Florida (May 2007).
Differences between Colocasia and Alocasia. The leaves of Alocasia are oriented upwards, while the leaves of Colocasia are oriented downwards towards the ground. Unlike Alocasia, Colocasia has a much greater need for water (supports even soil with high water retention), being classified by many breeders as a "water plant" and can grow in direct sunlight.
Colocasia Esculenta 'Mojito' can grow up to 120-150cm tall.
Colocasia is a plant sensitive to transport (especially temperature changes). Therefore, it is possible to receive these plants with some defects on the leaves, but these do not affect the viability of the plant. Under conditions of optimal care, the new leaves will develop normally.
Height with pots included: approx. 25 cm
