Where did you plant this outside? What’s the temp there? @cowdenkyle these are one of my favs. But I’m pretty sure it’ll probably die in the summer.. I’ll put it in a pot so I can move it around. Looks healthier and gorgeous

I gotta ask, what’s the size of that leaf?!?

@fearlessthereforepowerful it is probably over a foot across now. I hope I have the correct name of the plant😯

comment
fearlessthereforepowerful

I checked it on a couple other plant ID apps, and arrow leaf elephant ear came up. I’m definitely NOT good at things without spines, but if you’re unsure, throw the plant ID tag up. Looks right per my quick check tho! I have a different version of it, love these!
