Tea Cups Colocasia

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 because when the sun shines down on its leaves, it illuminates the leaf tissue around the dark purple veins.
