Colocasia 'Black Ripple' is a dwarf, clump forming, compact plant that develops heavily puckered iridescent leaves in dark black-purple with a maroon underside and dark black-purple petioles at maturity, can reach 3'-4' tall and produce blooms that smell like banana!
Special note for this plant: These can be difficult to ship and we are NOT responsible for this specific item's arrival condition unless significant stress was caused by being in transit, such as a broken box or snapped stems. Leaf blemishes are normal, as they do not like the lack of light at all, especially this size, but it's the only size we can ship economically.
These Colocasia NORMALLY suffer some leaf loss but they will bounce back if given the proper moisture/sunlight/warmth. They are meant to be planted in partial sunlight and either in rich soil/earth directly or in a large container. They can do well indoors if given the proper light and average temperatures.
We grow tens of thousands of plants every single year, but every week, our teams pick out only the BEST from what's now ready to ship so you get the freshest plant possible.
