Looking for colocasia Gigantea

    6 responses

Anyone have the thai giant colocasia? Will pay well for pups (are they called pups?)

I'm looking at you Mike, surely there's got to be a few getting around up in the jungle you've come across.

The giant elephant ear? I havent seen it around for a long time as it can go rampant and people try to get rid of it.I can keep an eye out.They are not in the jungle here just a few Allocasias.
They are called suckers and one is born every minute, or is that month?

They are on chatuchak market, also the aye aye banana but i won't go there for a while with those bombers.

Also they will cheat me again, for the aye aye they wanted 5000 baht when i asked them (they cost 500).

I rarely see them growing here.

About 20-30 km away Sternus but i was at that shrine last wednesday. It is next to Central World plaza which is the best mall of all in my opinion.

That area had many bombs last years, also Central World and it even got burned down during the protests some years ago. FYI it's a huge mall!

There was another bomb next day thrown from a bridge onto a tourist pier at the river. Nobody got hurt though. That bomber is dead if they catch him. Some years ago a crazy man smashed the Erawan shrine with an axe or hammer and within 5 minutes he was dead. A garbagetruck worker and a taxidriver got him. It's a very important statue for religious people here.
I also lighted candles there one day with my wife (you have to pay for that) but before we walked out a monk took the candles away so other people can place their candles there! I was astonished but money is also important it seems.

You should come here one day and buy all you want, thousand fingers is also on chatuchak market and if you're lucky that rainbow colored one as well.

There are more plantmarkets though and i rarely see white guys there which i like. Only problem going there is the Police along the roads who want bribes and like to stop me.

Most Thai gardens (in BKK) are too small for the elephant ears. Also they are so big that tree-sellers who visit markets can't bring them because they use pickup-trucks to transport all their tree's. If i had a big garden i would also grow them.

I got mine from Trikus but it hasn't thrived because I don't have a good spot for it and we had a very poor wet season last year. It lives, but hasn't done much.

Trikus will be along later to help out. The poor fellow is exhausted just now from having the Home Beautiful film team in today. A hard day keeping the servants polishing the potatoes and shining the S-bends. Such a bother!
