After scrolling, mine is about to overrun its pot too. Not sure if I'll try to overwinter it, I might pull the bulb, store it and put it into the ground next year. I didn't know they spread. Not a problem tho. Kind of a good thing really

Is yours like mine @lesliecole49 if so then yes they spread and will need to be kept in check. They do look great all spread out tho in beds with cannas and such growing with them. Plants that like the same soil environment

I recently had it's pot under a hackberry tree for late afternoon shade. But! Now the wooly aphids in the tree are pooping honeydo on it. So I've had to move it. I forget i cant put much of anything under it. The honeydo molds and will smother a plant. I only have half a dozen or more hackberry! @cyndi 😬

Elephant ears @moore.794 ? They do have a runner on this type so I could see them running amok in florida in the hotter areas. So far i havent had issues with to much spreading. Terry this wild taro known scientifically as Colocasia esculenta, is invasive in Florida and should not be planted is what i read but link below. I dont know the actual name of mine i put it under this one cus i dont know exact name sorry gt keeps glitching on me and not letting me finish typing.

Well I sure appreciate you doing that. Where do yours grow? I’d put mine in the dirt but it seems like the sun is burning the leaves and they get druppy fast if I don’t water them? I’m guessing they need shade but now I know I feel bad u did that. I know those arrowhead plants do the same but those runners grow leaves. Thxs again so much😊💕

Some are in part shade part sun some in full sun some in shade. They need loads of water in this heat ..at night is better cus has time to soak it up. No worries i just placed this in another spot cus it escaped its bed. Which they are prone to do. Lol @terrimclaughlin

These are the flowers of the elephant ears. Its not often you see this happen. And the bloom color I guess depends on the type you have. @terrimclaughlin I have some in all sun some in part shade they do the same for me but could be the soil and where I live at as well.
