Colocasia Red Eyed Gecko ®

COLOCASIA Red Eyed Gecko ® is named like that because of what is in the middle of its gorgeous and bright lime green foliage, a pink dot just like a gecko's eye. This vigorous and tropical's look selection reaches about 1m20 of height and width. Its spearhead shaped foliage stands off its pink stems. We associate it in wet environment with dark purple-coloured colocasia in order to create a sophisticated constrast.

What advices to achieve the COLOCASIA Red Eyed Gecko ®'s growth ?

We choose a well-wet soil and a semi shady or sunny exposure. Its frost-resistance is amazing for an exotic plant, until -8°C (once it is gently setteled). We water it in case of dryness. It can also grow indoor (we choose a light enough and not very heated place).
