Q:Inside or outside in the winter for elephant ear plant Portland Oregon
by|Aug 20, 2020
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Roz! We live in North Georgia which is 7 or 6b and our green taro winters over every year. It looks like Portland is in one of those zones, too, where your winters can go either way. I would say if you see a very cold set of temperatures heading your way, bring it indoors and keep its feet wet and in a sunny window until the cold passes or just wait until spring when the temperatures permit putting it back in your pond.

Answer This Question

A:  Hi Lia! I have personally never eaten any of the taro. I know that they are used as a food source in some parts of the world, but am not familiar with exactly how they are prepared. Based on my experience, I would not recommend eating green taro.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Person. This plant may reach heights of up to 4 feet. Most plants will get in the 2-3 foot range during the growing season. If you are way down south, say Florida, it could easily reach the height of 4 feet. As the plant matures, the crown of the plant's depth below the surface of your pond can be increased to up to 6 inches deep.

        A:  1-6 inches refers to the top of the pot (plants crown. 6 inches (or less) would be maximum for a fully mature plant. 1 inch for a very young plant starting.

        by|Apr 26, 2020

          A:  Not sure but both plants have increased in size about 20; percent in a few weeks

            Excellent
            Plant arrived fairly quickly and in perfect condition. The roots were will wet in the bag, no mess and the leaf (mine only had one) was in perfect condition. I planted it in my pond and it’s thriving, already growing another leaf. Highly recommend as far as product care and shipping.

                The product arrived several days later than expected, but was prepared and wrapped carefully by the grower, so it was still in great condition. Two weeks after planting, it's starting new shoots and seems to be quite healthy.
