Plant Bio

Elephant ear plants, or Colocasia, are tropical plants grown from tubers or rooted plants. Elephant ears have very large heart-shaped leaves borne on 2-3 foot petiole or leaf stalks. Colors of the foliage may be anywhere from purplish-black, green or green/white variegated. These are fast-growing, but don't get too large, perfect for a spot where you want to bring in a feel of the tropics but don't have room for a large plant.

Choose a site to situate the indoor elephant ear plant that is in indirect sunlight. Colocasia can tolerate direct sun, but it will tend to sunburn. Growing Colocasia inside requires high humidity. Use a humidifier in the room where you plan on growing Colocasia inside. Also, elephant ear houseplants should be elevated slightly with a layer of rocks or pebbles between the pot and the saucer. This will increase the level of humidity surrounding the indoor elephant ear plant while preventing the roots from coming into contact with the water, which may cause root rot. Soil choice for growing Colocasia inside is a well-draining, peat-rich medium.
