Colocasis ‘Tea Cup’ is a fabulous introduction to the family of ‘Elephant Ears’ with outrageous deep green cup-shaped leaves and wonderful purple veins and stems which contrast brilliantly. Fast growing and compact. Like all colocasia will need winter protection or if grown in a container brought into a frost free environment during the colder months.
For me I plant colocasia outside once the danger of frost has passed in very rich soil to which plenty of composted horse manure as been added. Keep well watered and feed generously during the summer. In late autumn I dig up my plants and pot them up, keeping them on the dry side throughout the winter until growth starts in spring.
