Colocasia Tea Cup (or Coffee Cups) has cupped up leaves. It is one of a kind, for sure! The leaves hold themselves very upright in an inverted cup like pose. They will fill up with water and then slightly tip over and pour it out. Tea Cup can put on a spectacular show. When the sun shines down on Tea Cup leaves, it illuminates the leaf tissue around the dark purple veins, which gives it a very spectacular look. This is just one of those plants that were its architectural form will blow you away!
The stems are dark maroon and look almost black.
