of elephant ear is in the Alocasia family and refers to the upward direction
in which the leaf points.
These plants have solid green matte leaves (sorry, no
fancy color offerings just yet). They will grow in full sun, but like the
caladiums, partial shade is ideal. This type of Elephant Ear can grow year-round if temperatures allow. They typically grow anywhere from 3’-5’, but tend to grow larger than our traditional elephant ears. This particular bulb is oblong and measured on circumference, different from caladium bulbs that are
measured on diameter. We offer the following sizes.
– 7”-9” sweet potato
– 9”-11” large sweet potato
Elephant Ear bulbs are NOT for edible consumption.
