        My Elephant Ear Thailand Giant

        By Kenny

        Comments about Elephant Ear Thailand Giant:

        First of all I do not have a green thumb. After seeing smaller elephant ears at a public golf course I decided I would buy one and see what happens. I couldn't have been happier. After searching the internet for who to buy from I choose American Meadows. The plant was healthy when received and absolutely thrived in Missouri's hot steamy summer. They were not in the shade but in direct sunlight . They have more then exceeded my expectations . Now that fall is approaching I was given prompt answers to my e-mail inquiry as to how to prepare the plant for winter. Shannon was very informative. All in all my experience with American Meadows and my first Elephant Ear plant was a huge success. Thank you very much. Charles Smith

              This Elephant Ear grew so big, next year it will go in the corner of my yard. Helped create a Tropical effect; reminding me of my childhood growing up in Key West.

                    I planted this according to the directions, and the plant did not thrive. It looks just like the elephant ears I bought at a mass market retailer. I will not buy again.

                    Comments about Elephant Ear Thailand Giant:

                    Hard to determine cause of browning edge of leafs - too much sun, not enough, moisture conditions should be OK with planter drainage. Move to more sunny location. Results pending.
