It's pretty much all lithops, all the time -- in excruciating detail. (I might have a problem.) Consider yourselves warned. NJ USA Zone 7a

Another monster #elephantear #bulb cluster now all cleaned off. Peeled away the remnants of the old leaves and ripped off the dry roots. All ready to be tucked back into the soil. 24 May 2020 #colocasia-esculenta

This guy already knows it's spring, even though he had been in the dark basement for 5 months. 24 May 2020 #colocasia-esculenta #bulb #elephantear

It's way past time to clean these off and plant them out again. They've been hibernating in the basement. #colocasia-esculenta #betterlatethannever #bulb #gigantic #elephantear #cluster 24 May 2020

My huge #elephantear #corm has dried out a lot since I dug it up. It looks like dormant greenovia 😁 22 Jan 2020 #dormant #colocasia #colocasia-esculenta

I hope I did this right. I dug up my #elephantear #bulb before the snow and it's in my garage now, drying out a bit before I haul it to the basement. This one bulb cluster is about a foot in diameter. 10 Nov 2019 #elephant-ear #overwinter

I hacked off the stems at the ground and felt like I was swinging a machete through the jungle. 9 Nov 2019 #taro #elephant-ear #elephantears #taroelephantears

These are the same #taroelephantears on 9 Nov after the first good frost. Time to dig 'em up! #elephant-ear #elephantears #taro

This is me back on 14 Aug, the evening before hubby and I closed on our first house. I was so thrilled to see how HUGE the #elephantears had gotten. They're over 3 feet long! #taroelephantears
