Q.Can Elephant Ears Be Dug Up And Put In A Container In The House Over The Winter?

Zone Marlton, New Jersey 08053 | Anonymous added on October 19, 2021 | Answered

I live in NJ outside Philadelphia. My neighbor gave me two elephant ear bulbs to plant. They have been in my garden all summer, and have stayed relatively small. I’d like to know if instead of cutting back the foliage and digging up the bulbs and winterizing them, can I keep them as is and pot them and winter them in my all enclosed sunroom as foliage plants? I’d like to eventually keep them on my deck in pots. Thank you for any experience and/or advice you can give me.

I grow them outside all the time but I am in z8 in Texas with normally mild winters. The following blog may be of interest. I ran into it last week from Longfield Gardens in Lakewood, NJ
