Plant the tubers about 2 to 3 inches (5-8 cm.) deep, blunt end down. Planting elephant ear bulbs indoors approximately eight weeks prior to the last frost date is also acceptable. If growing in pots use a rich, organic potting soil and plant them at the same depth. Harden off elephant ear plants for about a week prior to placing them outdoors.
Dark-leaved elephant ear growing in a water garden. These tropical plants grow best in warm temperatures and high humidity. They may languish in Midwestern gardens until warm summer conditions begin, and they will also falter when temperatures drop below 50F for prolonged periods of time. Elephant ears pair well with other foliage plants.
The Elephant Ear (Colocasia) is a tropical plant that grows up to 9 feet (2.7 m) tall and sprouts large, arrow-shaped leaves that resemble the ears on an elephant. To grow these stunning plants, plant the bulbs in the early spring with the right soil conditions. Care for them properly with frequent watering and fertilizing to watch them flourish.
Different elephant ear plants can have different leaf colors and shapes, so it can be fun to try several kinds together planted in interesting patterns. Other recommendations include ferns of contrasting colors, flowers like begonias, and foliage with smaller leaves like Coleus.
