Super excited! My Colocasia ‘Black Beauty’ which I thought died this spring has just started to grow again.
Two new shoots from last years (rotten) bulb in a 4″ pot
Last year this almost flowered for me twice but didn’t quite open either time. I doubt it will try this year because of its size but next year it might get another shot.

Since we’re already off topic… Other than plants hardy to zone 5 I keep Aroids (including this Colocasia, several members of the Cryptocoryne genus and off and on Anubias species, none right now), Ferns, Orchids and Bromeliads (Tillandsias and Vrieseas). Actually from that list I suppose I also keep Ferns, orchids and aroids that are hardy to zone 5… My orchid and Jack in the Pulpit were both just recently planted so I can’t comment on them too much but maybe expect a fern post in the future?
