I like elephant ear plants and have purchased some. Next, on my list to purchase are Black Magic Elephant Ears. These plants have large heart-shaped leaves that can grow up to 2 inches long. Their colors ranges from forest green to dark purple. Their bulbs must be dug up when winter arrives. The best planting information I found was from Fine Gardening.
I wonder how long it took them to get their potted Black Magic Elephant Ears to be this lush?

I have “The Black Thumb of Death” and hope I don’t kill anything this year. Last year I killed quite a few plants. This upset me. I felt bad for wasting the money and my time. I became so frustrated last year with my plant carnage I took it out on one poor victim. I yelled at it. I said, “I loved and loved on you and you just gave up. You died! That’s the thanks I get? Did I smother you? Huh?” It was not a lovely moment.
Any gardening tips? Do you have any elephant ears?
