My goodness whatever are you feeding it with, we had to give up growing Colocasia, because we do not have a GH, and everything that is tender has to come indoors!! lol

Its nick name is "Audrey II " has whats ever on offer , sea weed , tomato food , slow release and miracle grow....
its in a huge black tub and does need re-potting but I will have to use saw to cut it out as the pot has changed shape and that sits on a huge tray I keep constantly filled up with water , it will stay out till the first frost or 1st week of November which ever comes 1st , then 90% leaves cut off into the greenhouse and not waterd till maybe late March April.

Hi Dotty
I will probably feel the same ... the pot does have handles so that makes it easier.........
