The Q&A Archives: Elephants Ear

Question: My grandson & I have purchased an Elephants Ear to grow this summer. Is it best to plant them in the ground or should we use a large pot? Also do they need more shade than sun?

Answer: They grow best in bright shade and need lots of room for roots so plant them either in a large (5-gallon) container or plant them in the ground. Good luck with your elephant ears!
