Elephant Ear plant

13 years ago

Just a quick question about these plants as they grow like weeds around our house.

How well do they do in containers? I spent the day yesterday chopping up a bunch behind our fence line to keep the skeeters down. I dug up 2 little plants that were starting to come out of the ground. Roots and big tuber on the bottom came up and I potted in some 8"pots for now.

Are they kind of like bananas? one big tuber and and just send out pups?

We have a few big ones with flowers around our fence. Since they grow so fast here I would like to have a bunch to add to my "jungle" on our rooftop.
