The Q&A Archives: Colocasia-elelphant ears

Question: just bought a set of 4 bulbs but unsure on which way is up so I don't plant the bulbs upside down. One side has a define center bud/root? with rings arounf it, the other side 3-4-either root or bud cirles. Just need to know which way is up. Thanks

Answer: The ringed end goes up, the end with multiple growing spots goes down. Sometimes it is hard to tell, if so, you can plant it sideways. Try to give them gentle bottom heat and a warm soil temperature until they sprout, don't overwater. Enjoy!
