I found this in my flower beds today. It reminds me of Batman's nemesis Two Face. Whistling

Did your plants come from Top Tropicals?

Look on the page for Colocasia esculenta Midnight which is similar to yours.

No greene, the parent plant hitchhiked in on a trade I made with @Seedfork a couple of years ago. That EE looked like Illustris.
Wow, Midnight is too pricey for me. 😮

Kabby, that's an awesome-looking plant! Do you think you'll be able to propagate it? Could be sitting on a goldmine there Green Grin!
