From central America, Xanthosoma arrived in the 17th century by sagolitholium through slaughter transports in West Africa. There the plant was eaten a lot because of the starchy tuber and the leaf and stems that are full of proteins and vitamins. The nutritional crop is still popular in Cuba, Costa Rica, the Philippines and in Suriname. In these countries, the tuber is a basic ingredient of the oven dish pom.
The novelty Xanthosoma sagittifolium Frozen Planet has another striking feature, a touch on the leaf, which reminds of a mature layer, like the leaf is frozen.
The plant must be in a light place, but not in the full sun. This may damage the blade. In the shade, the plant will look up and thus become oblique. The plant only has to be turned and he will grow straight again.
Regularly watering, do not let it dry out, nor leave the roots in a layer of water.
The Xanthosoma is best grown at room temperature and not too close to the heating. From too dry the plant will dry out too quickly.
And suddenly there was a lonely, but so beautiful plant, between a supply plant from Asia. A little piece yet, but with a color stalk that was so unlikely that it should grow up, and we had to know what this would be for planting.
We have seen this spot grow into a beautiful beautiful plant, which deserves an equally beautiful name, the Xanthosoma Frozen Planet® . Named because the stems of the plant are so beautiful, with the appearance of dew, as if it has frozen and the whole planet is covered in a fog ... .. Frozen Planet®.
The Xanthosoma Frozen Planet® is 100% developed in our company by growing and multiplying the parent plant.
Well, it's not sure if the family is from the Alocasia. As the plant grows, the leaf will hang the old leaf, so that the new leaf will get a chance to develop. The old sheet can simply be cut off, which does not make any problems. The new leaf will grow up and be larger than the previous leaves and thus the plant will grow slowly.
