Does the leaf in this pic come from a real plant?

If so, what plant is it and can I grow it in Oklahoma?
>>
So apparently it's a Taro plant.

I dont know what kind though.

Have you really never used an umbrella in your entire life?
>>
I don't know what species the plants in your photos are but there are plenty of people in colder climates that grow similar plants outdoors during the summer and bring them indoors during the fall.

Colocasia gigantea and Alocasia macrorrhiza come to mind.

Holy shit. That guy's referring to how the man is walking down the middle of the fucking street instead of on the side.
>>
>>2069856
Its some kind of Colocasia.

I've seen elephant ears in gardens in North Georgia, so I have to assume they can survive a deep freeze.
>>
It's a giant taro, different than the taro you get from stores. Very sub-par vegetable, mostly find them in atolls. I used them as umbrellas while hitchhiking around Maui. Not really suited for Oklahoma, but like try I guess so long as you over winter.
>>

He's crossing the road? Just not at the crosswalk. Because some people jaywalk. What a surprise and totally warrants an explaination.
>>
>walking across the road instead of across the road
>>
>>2069860
Walking like he's a pompous asshole? Because he is.
>>
>>2069860
Maybe his feet hurt
>>
>>2069908
and he is right infront of a crosswalk. He just appears to be one of those jackasses that crosses roads at an angle and takes twice as long, instead of going all the way to the crosswalk
>>
I want a giant Canadian.
>>
it could be a leaf from the Taro plant, or Elephants ear.
>>
Its an Aroid.
>>
>>2069908
I don't care about the answer, I just care about multiple people's piss-poor comprehension. It's not hard to figure out what the anon was referring to.

Calm your autism. What does it fucking matter.

Can we eat it ?

From all the ass kickings he's been handling out to chuckle fucks giving him shit for his leaf umbrella.
>>
>>2070857
taro in general has a lot of silicates, I believe there is a process to eat them, I think you basically have to remove the upper layer of the leaf, and the lower layer and possibly the veins of the leaf, you might also need to cook it.
In the jungles of the world some people eat that shit.
>>
>>2069878
Elephant ear bulbs have to be taken in during the winter and kept a few months in a cool, dark place. Letting them freeze kills it.
>>
>>2071011
Will they grow in the absence of silicon?
>>
>>2071016
Short answer, no.

Being a oklahomo native, I say good fucking luck growing anything like that outside. We don't have the humidity for it.
