We grew elephant ears in the SFG this year and they really liked Mel's mix to grow in. They seldom bloom for us,and this year they bloomed,they have a really cool looking bloom on them,a tall yellow flower.

Josh, that is fantastic. I plant elephant ears every year in big pots but I have to dig them up in the fall like glads or dahlias and replant them in the spring because they can't take being frozen. Is that what you do or can you leave it in the ground all year round? How long from planting to bloom time?

We have to dig them up too. I planted them in late March,the bulbs were about the size of a grapefruit. I read that they need to be 5 years old before they bloom. I can't wait to see how big the bulb is this year when we take them up,since it's growing in the Mel's mix it should be easy to take up.
