Edible keladi is rarely regarded as beautiful, definitely not exotic. It's the smaller keladi with multi-coloured leaves that are very much sought after, always end up in pots, treasured by ladies. Once plants become source of food, they become very common, left in the field very much alone. That's how life goes.....
keladi = taro
So, our very common keladi really enjoyed the new space in a new setting. Seeds or tubers were all brought from Tanah Merah, our former place.

They were planted five months ago, wait another month or two, they need to be harvested. Farmers in Kelantan mentioned about Keladi maturity starts after 6 months... But these keladi are real drinker. They really love soil to be wet and moist all the time.
