Care Colocasia Colocasia Tea Cup: 

In spring you pot your rhizome in well-permeable soil. You place the potted Colocasia in a warm and light place. Limit the water supply until the first shoots are visible (the earth must not dry out). After it start to make leaves, you can start giving more water. As soon as the frost has disappeared, your Colocasia Tea Cup may be placed outside. In the beginning, we advise you to avoid direct sunlight and let the plant harden / get used to it first. You can leave your Colocasia in pot or a shallow place in a pond.

At the end of the summer you can let the plant come to rest, you will no longer fertilize. Your Colocasia will die off in the autumn. As soon as the plant has come to rest, you can remove the rhizome from the earth. You brush it gently and remove dead plant remains. You keep the rhizome in a cool dry and dark place.

Colocasia Tea Cup is specially selected by Matthijs Hazeleger for Nelumbo Garden IJzendoorn.
