Q.What Do I Do About Mold On My Elephant Ear Bulbs?
I dug them up like normal. I layed them out before taking them inside. Now I opened the container 2 months later and there is a white mold growing all over them. What do I do? Should I rinse them off or what ??

If there's just a white, powdery mold on the bulbs, go ahead and rinse them and dry them well. However, if you spot some deterioration in the bulb itself, like mushiness or a dark spot, you'll need to cut that part away or dispose of the bulb. Bulbs can contract a lot of different types of molds but many are harmless. The key is to determine whether it's something external that you can clean away, or if it has penetrated the bulb.
