* Elephant’s Ear is a robust perennial plant with a large corm on or just below the ground surface and it has very large, heart-shaped leaves that are borne on thick stalks.
* They need sun or shade and spacing in-between must be at least 1.2m to allow optimum growth – it will mature after 5-10 months.
* It grows well in moist heavy soils but will also do reasonably well in any soil provided it is moisture-retentive.
* Elephant’s ear should not be left to go dry for too long and periodic fertilisation (every 3 to 4 weeks) with a common plant fertiliser will increase yields.
* It can also be grown as an aquatic plant.
* It can be grown in large containers or outside in the ground all year-round in subtropical and tropical areas.
