HOW DO I CARE FOR THEM?
Elephant Ear plants are pretty low-maintenance. Water them regularly and remove leaves as they yellow. You can also apply a slow-release fertilizer, but this is not typically necessary.
WILL THEY COME BACK NEXT YEAR?
Elephant Ear Plants are tropicals, so they will not come back if left outside over winter. To overwinter them, cut them down to about 2-4", dig them up, place them in a box with peat moss, and store them in dry area that does not get below 45 degrees.
