Got this recently from a nursery where they have called it Caladium bicolour and also said it’s medicinal. Wanted to reconfirm.
It is Maranta leuconeura kerchoveana.
Thank you very much. Is it medicinal?
No idea …
I do have some Maranta’s and this one looks different. More like a Caladium.
This is Colocasia fallax Schott.
Appears like Princess Taro ‘Jenningsii’ (Colocasia affinis) as per http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/251029/
Is it Colocasia heterochroma???
It looks more like Colocasia affinis and Colocasia heterochroma.
Hope somebody can confirm.
