|I purchased this recently and the tag just said Colocasia esculenta. I know there are many different cultivars.|
Can anyone help with this one?
Thanks so much!

|I think that if the plant throws offsets on runners, it is Colocasia antiquorum. If it throws offsets directly on the parent corm, it is Colocasia esculenta. Your plant looks similar to Chinese Bun-long Taro, which would make it Colocasia antiquorum, but that's a guess. The two species used to be lumped as one, as different varieties, and are easily confused.|
