How to care for Taro
Taro needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.

Taro love being close to bright, sunny windows 😎.
Place it less than 1ft from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Taro does not tolerate low-light 🚫.

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Taro after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Although many taros do very well in full sun I found that the younger leaves from these round of bulbs do not and will burn in prolonged direct sunlight. I keep mine pretty wet and have it in a terracotta pot to prevent rot. If you can water it with rain water or distilled, do that
