Q.How Deep Should I Plant A Colocasía Black Magic Indoors?

Zone 02143 | Anonymous added on June 8, 2021 | Answered

Hello! I just repotted my colocasia black magic in a large pot to allow her to grow during the summer. I am not sure if I planted her deep enough. The stems are weak and the leaves are heavy, so the stems are white bent/curved. Perhaps that’s normal until the plant grows stronger roots. But if it would be better to plant her deeper, I would want to know. Thanks!!!

You can't plant it any deeper or the stem will be below the soil which could cause stem rot. Make certain it is getting enough light and not too much water. It looks like the pot is plenty wide, which could be holding excess water.
