Colocasia 'Tea Cup' is one of a kind, for sure. Just take a look at the leaf structure on this one! 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 Cups' 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.
