Under the magnifying glass: Elephant Ear

Plant Person Pestered Persistently is the title I used for the blog introducing half-a-dozen new plants to my yard. At that time, I didn’t know the name of the plant and labeled it “unknown.” Less than thirty inches tall when I started nurturing it. Note the remarkable growths in less than three months. In the interim, I published messages titled Elephant Ear and Elephant Ear is growing so fast.

Leaves turning yellow


The Elephant Ear plants were not in the pictures but setting up a “mister” was primarily for their benefit. Leaves were turning yellow and I speculated the plants were suffering in the extreme heat and humidity. ~~ Situation rectified: Pictures taken.
