Colocasia Red Eyed Gecko PPAF is another great introduction from our breeding here at Brians Botanicals. This new Colocasia Gecko tm series concentrates on colorful new hybrids for the garden. The Red Eyed Gecko is a bright chartreuse plant growing from 4 to 6 feet tall. The petioles are white to light pink in color holding the light color foliage out form the clump. The foliage is brightly chartreuse in color having a reddish to pink dot in the center of each leaf, giving it the name Colocasia Red Eyed Gecko. This is a great plant for contrasting with darker foliage plants and should contrast well with other Colocasias such as Electric Blue Gecko or Puckered up
