Title: Taro
Post by: LivingParadise on April 01, 2017, 04:44:01 PM
I have had a lot of trouble growing taro so far. It seems to need constant watering. And then, you have to work to protect them against snails.

Anyone growing taro? Been successful? Tell us about it! Better yet, show us pictures! :)

So far, I'm keeping my most recent plants alive through this rough dry season. Hopefully they'll start to flourish when they are most established, and it's wetter out. I also probably need to work to give them better soil, since the natural soil here is very poor.

Remember if you are new to taro that it has to be cooked thoroughly before eating.
