black magic elephant ear yellow

kharri99August 8, 2012

Hi all I bought a black magic plant last year, I protected it over winter in my garage and started feeding again in spring. It has grown well but some of the new leaves are yellow and dont open out. as you can see from picture just wondering if anyone knows whats causing this the plant is in a pot and Im located in UK.

That's the flower of the plant; the yellow part is the spathe, the darker part has the spadix and will form the seed pod.

That leaf looks quite concave, like the Colocasia 'Tea Cups'. It also has the dark petioles and leaf blades. They rarely produce seed though, but propagate by runners.
