Elephant Ear Care
|Temperature:||Ideal temperatures should be approximately 65-75ºF + (18-24ºC +)...closer to 70ºF is best.|
|Light:||Bright light, but no direct sunlight and shaded for a good part of the day in the summer, if it's warm and humid enough.|
|Watering:||Water a little but often - keeping the soil moist at all times. Water much less during winter.|
|Soil:||Use a fast draining peat based potting mix.|
|Fertilizer:||Feed with a diluted balanced fertilizer from spring every 2 weeks and stop at the end of August then start again at the beginning of spring.|
|Re-Potting:||These can be re-potted every spring but only use a pot one size bigger if it's become very root bound.|
|Humidity:||These plants like slightly higher humidity levels than many other plants. You may need to raise the humidity levels in a room artificially by placing the plant in a humidity tray with pebbles or use a humidifier.|
|Propagation:||These are usually propagated by dividing the plant when it's being re-potted in spring.|
