Growing elephant's ear
I have an elephant's ear bulb and I'm not sure where to plant it. Can you help?

Luckily, elephant?s ear (Alocasia) is easy to grow?plant yours in a shady spot that has moist soil. I?ve found it helpful to plant the bulb in a protected spot so the leaves don?t get too tattered by wind. Because elephant?s ear doesn?t tolerate freezing temperatures, it isn?t a perennial in most areas. You?ll have to dig and store the bulb in a frost-free place after the first frost in autumn, or consider it an annual and plant a new one each year.
