Yeah, I got suckered. I got lured in by tropicals. I got a number of alocasias, colocasias, and related. I bought a mature (stunted in pot) Thai Giant colocasia; with a daughter on the side and a bloom stalk. I managed to get it home in the back seat of my car without harming it; and harvested the berries.... pipped 15 berries for 17 seeds. Got 13 sprouts and 10 made it past 2" and 4 leaves... then. That was mid September that I started the seeds; I built a greenhouse to winter things; and it is now the start of March. Those 10 seedlings ranged from 4" tall with a 2" leaf to 2' tall with a 10" leaf. And one twinned and one tripletted. I did the uppot on the 2nd of March. I have three full months to when I dare harden them off to live under shadecloth. The daughter is still on the mother corm, have not had the chance yet to repot mama, who is just approaching one year old (corm start said the nursery).
HELP! Help? Um, what am I going to do with rampant success?!?!?!??!?
I also have three Mojito, and one is almost faded to nothing. I have been keeping them wet-toes and only thing I can think of is not enough light. I just finished redoing the 40x48" top deck with all the baby Thai's, the miniature roses, and the pothos and spider plant explosion; now I need to do the jungle of the 'wet toes tub' under it with the umbrella palms, mini papyrus, variegated plecanthrus and all the smaller alos and colos; the imperial is doing okay, the caladiums are middling. (floor pots in tubs include a violet stem, an unknown green that loves to grow aphids despite my best efforts, and the Hilo Beauty, plus the Thai and her two babies that had to go to floor pots.)
I guess it's mostly a warning to those seduced by the Thai Giant, be prepared to be overgrown? and to hear from other afficianados..
My hand is ON the leaf, and is 7" from tip of finger to the bend of back of wrist. This was the largest 'baby' who is now in 10" pot on floor next to mama.
