Description

IT is a tropical plant grown primarily for its edible corms, the root vegetables most commonly known as taro. It is believed to be one of the earliest cultivated plants.

This is not a common variety. The regular green to greenish purple variety is commonly seen growing in India. It is usually planted where kitchen washing water flows off. Plants love water and wet areas. It spreads and grows well if given some fertilizer. Even without leaves can be harvested every second week.The yellow variety too is easy to grow. It is slower growing and is also less tolerant of very harsh sunlight.

When growing plants in garden soils, provide regular moisture, especially during dry summer periods, and do not allow soils to dry out. Plants may also be grown as pond marginals in up to 6 of standing water.
