Taro has no seeds. It is propagated by removing the offshoots from the mother plant (corm) when they are roughly 15 cm high or buy a taro tuber (the one that is used for eating ) and cut the top section with about 2 cm of tuber intact. Leave oi for a bout two days and plant it about 6-7 cm deep in the soil. Water plenty Taro plants can be bought from plant suppliers or sometimes in markets Be careful whether you want for eating or as ornamental.
