Caladium for ID : 10 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (1).
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/


It looks more like Colocasia affinis and Colocasia heterochroma.

Hope somebody can confirm.
