Elephant Ear Plants

elephant ear mjito

Anonymous added on September 15, 2015 | Answered

Since it is getting colder here in Iowa, I dug up my elephant ears out of the pot they were growing in. It wasn't easy and I was trying to be very careful not to damage the bulbs. On one plant, only half of the bulb remained. On the Mjito elephant ear, I couldn't find the actual bulb; it was only a tight knot of fine roots. Both plants were very healthy the whole time they were in the pot. I suspect that neither plant will survive being stored since the bulbs appear to be damaged or gone. What happened to my bulbs? Do you think they could be saved?

Any tubers that are damaged likely will not survive.
