Well, it has been waay to long since my last post. I am very sorry about that. I have been super busy lately.  But rest assure I am still hard at work creating my tropical paradise.  

I have been given a gift from a dear friend of mine yesterday. She picked this little gem up at a plant sale over a year ago. I was at her house when I saw it. It was a Variegated Elephant Ear ( Colocasia esculenta 'Elepaio' ). I have never seen one before and I instantly fell in love.  I asked her to break me one off when it began to throw pups and she replied " No problem".  Well to my surprise her son hand delivered it to me yesterday.

To be honest , it was over a year ago since I have seen this Variegated Elephant Ear and I had completely forgotten about it.  So you can imagine my surprise when it was handed to me. That made it extra special to me.  I will take extra good care of this one! 

The Variegated Elephant Ear ( Colocasia esculenta 'Elepaio' ) can survive in sun to shade conditions and is a tropical plant. It is a rare Elephant Ear that is named after the rare Hawaiian fly catcher bird 'Elepaio'. This tropical plant requires consistently moist soil which makes it great for bogs and water gardens.

Here is a picture of my new  Variegated Elephant Ear ( Colocasia esculenta 'Elepaio' )

I hope you enjoyed my post. See you again next time!!
