              Comments about Elephant Ear Sangria:

              I've never ordered live plants from a nursery before, but I suppose my expectations were a little more. The plant looks like it was retrieved from the 1/2 off shelf at some garden center. One leaf is nearly dead. It didn't seem like this little guy got too much light, fertilizer, or water.
              With it being an elephant ear plant I assumed it would have a large nodule root system, but this had only roots. I did throw in some bone meal before planting.
