The elephant's ear plant is terrific, lush, jungly bedding plant for growing outside over summer with other large-leaved plants like cannas and Trachycarpus fortunei. When mature it sends up a large, shield-like leaf. Stand in a sheltered spot so that the leaves don't get flayed by strong winds. Dig up in early autumn and repot, and keep in a conservatory at about 18c, giving just the occasional drink. Increase watering as growth begins next spring, and plant out in summer. Don't leave outside during winter in the UK.
