Zone Perth Western Australia | Fletcharia added on December 6, 2021 | Answered

Hi there / G’day I live in Perth Western Australia which is a Mediterranean climate, we never have frost even though we have quite cold winters. I grow Elephant Ear plants but ours are a tropical variety and do not have the large bulbs as ours are like a tubular variety with actual roots and their leaves are nowhere near as large as yours in the United States. When they grow they send babies up which I dig down, then pull up and plant separately with roots intact. So my question is, can I purchase one or maybe two of these bulbs of the HUGE Elephant Ears ones so I can grow them over here in Western Australia and if so how do I go about buying it/them. Regards Steve Fletcher

We do not offer plants for sale, or information on where to purchase them. We only offer information on their growth and care, unfortunately. You could try local nurseries, or online nurseries.

They would, certainly, grow in your area as long as you can provide proper watering and conditions for them, though.

Also, I will remove it this time, but please do not post your personal information online to the public. These do appear to the public.
