I have a large" Elephants ears" in a huge pot. The leaves are huge - i just love them. And what with all the rain weve had they are looking good enough to eat. lol Only kidding.
Im not sure of their proper name - buts its easier to call them elephants ears.
The only thing is in the centre of the plant are tiny black fly. I read washing them with soapy water will get rid of these creatures. Has anyone any tips for me? I dont want to use spray of kill them in washing up liquid either. I wondered how soapy the mix should be?
