Overwintering Colocasia Illustris/Black Magic
Any ideas on overwintering Colocasias inside? I have tried leaving them in their pots (they slowly died/rotted) and I have tried digging them up and saving the bulbs (they dried up)... I know they are a little different/diifficult than alocasias (the green ones) to overwinter. I have no trouble with alocasias- both ways they do fine. Any advice? I live in Zone 6 & can't leave them outside. P.S. Don't try to bring an Illustris or Black Magic in your house (whole plant) like I did last winter- the black "sap" permanently stained my carpet & walls!
