Colocasia kapo [hort] aff. falax
Stock Number: 30633
Availability: In Stock
Family: Araceae
Cultural Code: HP TGH what's this?

Charming "Miniature Taro" Small one foot plant with small shield-shaped leaves with dark radiating veins accenting the pink-blushed centers. Nearly evergreen if kept in warmish winter greenhouse avoiding an extended winter dormancy. The same semi-aquatic plant as the one various of you ordered from us years ago as 'Hawai'i Silver Kapo' which was Waimea Arboretum's name for it. Perhaps will remain the best of the decorative Taros for houseplant and litegardening projects.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
