Thai elephant ear plants

fairie_giggles added on January 20, 2017 | Answered

I have a giant Thai elephant plant. It was covered with blossoms all last summer. I want to know if the seeds started from the flowers will be true to the species... Will they all be Thai giant elephant ear plants? Or do they have to be started from tissue to be true?

Growing from seed is not very successful.
It is best to grow from off shoots.
