It's been only 9 days since your inquiry, and there must be 100 messages
posted since then! It's not usually this busy on aroid-l, and I think yours
must have gotten lost in the dwarf aroids.
You should be able to grow almost any of the Colocasia varieties in the
wetter areas of the pond. Xanthosoma varieties will do better toward the
edges where it dries out more. They will love the full sun and wet
Typhonodorum will probably grow in the wet areas also, but I don't know
where it could be obtained. Colocasia and Xanthosoma are available in
ethnic groceries under various names. Just buy several of each variety and
see where they grow the best.
I planted one Colocasia with a large green leaf and burgandy leafstem in a
wet area and it spread to about 20' by 40' in a years time! You are welcome
to drive to the east coast and dig this and many others if you wish. I'm
near Stuart Florida.
There are lots of aquatic and semi-aquatic aroids that would grow there but
finding them in quantity is always a problem. Anyone else have any
