The Colocasia gigantea, or Thailand Giant, is reach-for-the-sky kind of giant. It grows up to 10-feet tall with leaves up to 5-feet long and 4-feet wide. So grab a lemonade and take a seat under the Thai Giant's generous shade. If your plant doesn't look just like the picture, give it a little time to grow up. Elephant ears' attributes become even more defined when they mature.
Average mature height: 7-10 feet
Light: Full to part sun.
Soil: Well-drained. Keep moist but not soggy.
