Q.How far to cut back elephant ear stem.

Zone 66212 | Roger Hicks added on February 19, 2018 | Answered

I wintered over all my elephant ears but one. I had so many I kept one small one that was in a pot and brought it inside just to see how it would do. Of course i dont have enought light and now two of the six big leaves have yellowed and died. How far back shold i cut these stems. Almost March 1st, and too late to dig it up, as it will go back ourside in about 6 weeks. Thanks in advance.

I assume you have an Alocasia. If so, cut the stems down to right above where they emerge from the pot.
