themoonhowl, funny that dew changes their color! But they are still beautiful! How long after dew changes their color does their color go back to normal?

purpleinopp, I didn't think about oak trees/acorns either when I planted my Alocasia Mayan Mask and Colocasia Black Beauty underneath their far reaching branches. Then about the beginning of September when acorns began to fall, I was in horror LOL I dug up 1 Mayan Mask and potted it and moved another to a different bed closer to the house at the ends of oak tree branches.

The picture is the one I potted up. I brought it inside about a week ago and it grew a new leaf already. It really likes the window I have it in and receives light from about 9am to 1pm. Hopefully, it will still get good light once the time changes tonight. Otherwise , I will have to move it to a corner in my bedroom where it will have a window on each side...one offers morning light, the other afternoon light. Growing in the pot with it is Asparagus densiflorus 'Sprengeri' and Philodendron Xanadu.
