Introducing the Colocasia White Lava - a magnificent addition to your tropical collection. Featuring captivating dark green leaves with vibrant creamy white hues radiating from its central veins, this heat-loving plant brings a touch of elegance to any setting.


Best suited for a protected sunny patio, well-lit window, or conservatory, the Colocasia White Lava thrives in full sun and well-drained soil, requiring shelter from cold winds. Its versatile nature makes it perfect for both containers and borders during the summer months, with added protection against the chilly ambiance of autumn.


As a tender plant, the Colocasia White Lava boasts an upright habit with a height and spread of approximately 60 x 50 cm. 

When it comes to planting recommendations, this tropical gem excels when placed in beds or borders, as well as in containers. It prefers a splendid balance of full sun and part sun exposure, ensuring its optimal growth and development.


In terms of temperature tolerance, the Colocasia White Lava will die back over winter. However, with careful protection from frost, it may revive in the following spring. An alternative approach involves gently digging up the tubers before the first frosts and storing them in a cool, frost-free area. These tubers can then be replanted in a pot for the upcoming spring season. Please note that the white variegation comes in with age, when young it will not express this.
