These are going to stay in the ground. Every weather forecast I've heard continues our new dry and warmer pattern for the winter. Saddens me, but life goes on. This will probably survive fine. 10.27.18
I'm going to see how they do over winter this year keely. I doubt that they'll make it, but I had it (one huge bulb) in a large pot and it wasn't happy. So I'm going to leave it. If it doesn't make it I'll get another. It was very inexpensive @keely
I think it’ll make it just cover it with a lot of mulch. For my zone and for my bougainvillea it’s recommended to put 3 inches thick of mulch all the way out to drip line but your elephant ears probably just real good alittle out from bulb. They look real good 🤗🤗😊💕
You need it up there then! We'd been over 90 days or something totally NOT our real PNW weather. But we kept it under 100...mostly @shelleysnyder you'll get some. Sun's coming out now. Nice shower tho.
We do need some, but when it starts it doesn't seem to stop till next spring so I'm on the fence about wanting any!😂 I think we may have had 2 days it hit 100 or just over, I'm not positive but I know we tied the record for over 90° days, July was a hot one! I guess that's our new norm huh?🤔💘😍
I certainly don't know about this one, but the ones I have, have an amazingly small root system. I had one in the same pot for 5 years and thought I should repot it and when I took it out it wasn't root bound yet!😲 Talk about shocked! So if it's a big pot I'm thinking you'll be fine!😁😍💘
@columbiariver I got the 3 to a pack Walmart elephant ears last year pretty sure just plain old calocasia. They love the heat and rain here in the South the corms about tripled in size and a ton of babies.
I'm excited to try this Erick. I bet yours did great. I know that NC humidity. And I agree with you, it's calocasia. The sticker that was stapled onto this did say giant or jumbo, and it's a little bigger than a softball! I planted it up in a rather large pot so it has room to multiply. Bring on the calocasia! @dvod88
