Thank you very much!
My ones also lost all leaves last year after temperatures had been -4 degree Celsius. The leaves broke away directly on the ground and I was sure that they are dead but they came back in spring with a lot of suckers.

Nice!! Mine just flowered also. It shot out two little white flowers. I did not even know that they flowered at all. I would also expect that the flowers would be much larger next to the leafs the flower is a dwarf. Do you know if this plant will make seeds? I have had mine over a year and no pups.

Yes I have even written that these seeds should also be easy to germinate. Unfortunatelly I had no seeds before. Maybe this time.

I tried to buy one in the US but the sellers won't ship to Europe.
I checked your website but didn't see the thai giant. Vielleicht habe ich mit meiner Nase geschaut.

I live in Holland, a trip to Beieren....maybe on summer holiday

What would the thai giant cost including shipping to Holland?

Thnx, Henk

Dear Henk,

Yes you need a Phytosanitary Certificate from the USA and this you only get when you have a import permit for Colocasia. This you only get when you have a registred nursery in EU with regular controls. This only pays off for both sides when the quantity is rather big. This is also the reason why I ship outside the EU only starting a special order sum because all this is not cheap and takes much time. So I can understand US sellers.

Sorry I really put the Thailand Giant as sold because I have young plants only in a limited number and the adult mother plants are getting very much offshoots in the moment. In the spring I will have them available again.

Whould be so great when you whould come to my place. I have very much rare species available that are not listed on my website.

For prices I will send you a pm because I think its the wrong place to list here.
