Elephant Ears

Anonymous added on February 1, 2014 | Answered

I put my elephant ear tubers in my basement in the fall. I noticed yesterday that the larger two are growing leaves already. What is going on? I thought they wouldn't grow back until spring, but it's only Feb. Should I cut them back? They are my favorite elephant ears. I live in MI.

To be honest, the unusual weather we have been having is to blame. If you can put them somewhere cooler, that can help slow their growth. If not, try to get them some light. They are coming out of dormancy due to warm temps, so cutting the leaves will not help.
