Where do you get a great deal on elephant ears in Ft Lauderdale? Just curious if prices and availability of variety selection is better in Florida than the Midwest.

The local gardens probably carry several of the more common ones. Like anywhere else, to get the uncommon ones, you would need to seek out a collector or breeder like LariAnn in Miami or other online sources. Try local markets too like flea markets, craigslist, etc.
