Last weekend, I bought a Black Magic plant at my nursery.
It’s commonly called ‘taro’, and from what I’ve read online, it’s in the arum family and is related to the calla lily.
The Black Magic plant is very beautiful. It has large velvet-like purple-y black leaves.
When I bought it, it was healthy but seemed as though it was too big for the pot it was in. Separating and re-potting it seemed like the best thing to do.
Upon transplanting them, all leaves drooped terribly and stayed that way for about 24 hours.
I since learnt that they do require quite a bit of water since their stalks are mostly made up of long thin fibers that hold water that keeps the leaves standing straight.
I paid $13.00 for it and after separating them, was able to get five plants from it. A pretty great deal, no?
PS. Yes, I did re-pot a monstera at the end of the video :))
