Colocasia esculenta 'Nancy's Revenge'

I have only just been sent this young plant, which accounts for its rather ordinary appearance. Introduced to the USA from the Caribbean in 2000, and slowly spreading worldwide. In warm weather the leaves develop an expanding cream mark in the centre of the leaves, and spreading along the veins.

During the summer the cream mark in the leaf has developed. Originating in the Caribbean and introduced in 2000. My plant has been rather slow, and probably needs more warmth and better feeding.
