There are three types of Elephant Ear plants. The technical difference between each species can only be determined at a microscopic level, but here are some observable characteristics of each type.
These babies won't stay small for long...
We send Elephant Ear plants while they're still babies (3-8" tall), but they have enormous potential.
We sell baby plants
Wellspring Gardens is the starter plant, AKA “baby plant” shop. We just get you started, so you get all the credit for raising your plants under your green thumb.
How tall are baby plants?
We aim to ship your plants when they’re 3-8” tall, though we often ship them taller than that.
What determines whether I get a 3-, 6-, or even 18-inch-tall plant?
The exact size of the plant we send you is variable on the time of year and how long we've been growing it out.
Seven days to regrow
What if my Elephant Ear is damaged in transit?
Elephant Ears have fragile leaves but hardier stems. Losing leaves doesn't spell death; it’s all just part of the normal growth process.
