A version of this care guide is included with each Elephant Ear purchase

Follow the instructions below and you should not have any problems with Elephant Ears Plant. All plants experience some shock when moved around and may take a bit of time to adjust to their new environment in your home, But take gentle care, give it patience and it will reward you with its beauty.


The Elephant Ears Plant prefers bright indirect light, and can also tolerate lower light levels. Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.


Soil must be moist at all times. Water the soil evenly (under the decorative moss), but do not oversaturate - usually this needs to be done about once a week, but may vary based on the conditions in your space (more light and dry air means more water). As with all plants, avoid overwatering, and drain any excess water from the bottom of the pot as standing water may cause root rot.

Other Things To Know

Feel free to trim off any dried or damaged leaves and stems as close to the base as possible. This encourages the growth of new leaves. Avoid cold drafts and gusts of wind.

It's recommended to keep this plant out of direct reach of pets and children as it may slightly irritate them if ingested.
