Propagation

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Xanthosoma species may be propagated easily from cuttings of leafless stem tips in spring. Cuttings are allowed to dry at the base before planting in well-drained soil. Cuttings are particularly susceptible to rot in moist soil.

 

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Xanthosoma are not tolerant of cold and must be protected. Therefore, they should be container grown in colder regions. In areas that may be warm most of the time but still fairly prone to cold winters, the plant can be dug up and overwintered indoors. Alternatively, you can sink container grown Xanthosoma in the ground, bringing them indoors once the temperatures begin to drop in fall. Once warmer temps return in spring, you can return the plants back outdoors. When growing Xanthosoma plants in pots, use a coarse, well-draining potting mix—cactus mix or perlite and sand should be fine.
