The Q&A Archives: elephant ear

Question: I purchased a black magic elephant ear bulb. It just sprouted. The stem is black but the leaf is green. Does it turn black as it matures or is it a black stem in the wrong packaging?

Answer: As the leaf matures it will develop the black color you expect to see. Just be patient with your plant and it will reward you with a fabulous display. Enjoy!
