'Tea Cup' Taro is a very unique taro. Tea Cup leaves hold themselves very upright in an inverted cup like pose. The leaves will fill up with water & then tip over and pour it out. 'Tea Cup' can put on a spectacular show. When planted in the sun the leaves will illuminate the leaf tissue around the dark purple veins. Will do best in a modest size container, warm water above 65 and warmer summer nights for best growth. Fertilize monthly. Bring inside and treat as a normal house plant with only moist soil in south facing window for winter in cold zones. Can overwinter in a pond zones 8-11. Full sun to Part Sun. Can grow 3 feet + in the south.
