Container Planting Spacing of Elephant Ears


Anonymous added on September 26, 2015 | Answered

This past spring I bought two elephant ear (Colocasia) corms and inadvertently planted them together in a container in my garden. They did well this season and I am hoping to see them grow for many years to come. Do I need to do anything about the lack of space between the corms? Should I dig one up and move it to the other side of the container or another container? If so, when? Now or late winter? Or should I leave well enough alone since they both semed to do well this season and just leave them planted where they are? Thanks.
