Gardening Know How Questions & Answers -


In the fourth paragraph of your article, “Growing Colocasia Inside: How To Grow Elephant Ears Indoors” (, you say: “When growing Colocasia inside, be sure to choose a fairly large container to pot the plant in. Colocasia can attain a good size, so you will want to be prepared.” How large is “fairly large”? Any other advice on potting this plant would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

A pot between 14 and 18 inches across will work well. Once the leaves are fully grown, the plant may look slightly crowded in the pot. But this will help prevent the soil from staying wet for too long. Also, use well-drained potting soil. Mixing in perlite or sand is a good idea.
