The Q&A Archives: Planting Elephant Ears

Question: How do I know the proper way to place an elephant ear bulb into the ground. The directions say to place the "knobby" end up? Which is the knobby end, I can't tell. Thank you.

Answer: This can be very difficult. The knobby end might show little bumps where shoots will appear later. If you can't tell, just plant it. In my experience, the shoots seem to find their way.
