Hello all!
I have two questions about this monster of a plant!

1) Is it possible to grow Colocasia gigantea indoors with substantial indirect light in a north facing window in NY?

and

2) Has anyone tried growing this plant outdoors during the late spring and summer in one of the colder zones (zone 7a and below)?

Thank you!!
Green Grin!

I grow the Thailand Giant outside from late May to mid September depending on the temp, than it goes in the basement with low light conditions, it does not thrive in the basement but gets it to the spring to go outside once again.
