Q.Elephant Ears

Anonymous added on January 31, 2014 | Answered

I recently got an elephant ear plant and some of the leaves started to die before I had the chance to put it in a pot. What is the best way to trim these off? And do you have any tips for taking care of it? Thank you for your time.

I would just cut them back near the base of the plant, leaving a couple inches. The bulb will eventually regrow foliage. This article will help with caring for this plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/elephant-ear/growing-elephant-ear-plants.htm
