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

It looks more like Colocasia affinis and Colocasia heterochroma.

Hope somebody can confirm.
