Red Spider Mite - Alocasia v. Colocasia

I’ve generally been a Colocasia man but, they always do horrendously in the conservatory as they’re a Red Spider Mite magnet. I use neem oil to good effect, but the leaves still end up a write off. The ones outside are fine, but indoors ...

Colocasia gaoligongensis as an aquatic/semi-aquatic?

Right, I've managed to track a tuber down and should take delivery this week. I have two questions:

1) I am hoping to grow this as a semi-aquatic in dappled shade. Will this work?
2) How should I plant it up and keep it prior to moving in to the water?

Starting off colocasia esculenta

Hi all

Just received delivery of 3 colocasia bulbs and was wandering when (time of year) and how most people plant out their colocasias. Do I need to start them off indoors and provide extra heat?

Any good tips or pointers would be great.

Thanks in advance
