Growing Elephant Ears?

I dug up my elephant ear bulbs today and it appears that the original bulb that I planted has rotted or gone soft. Since this is my first year doing this, I'm not sure what else I should be seeing. Is the portion at the bottom of each stalk a new bulb?

This is called a tuber.

  1. Leave this a few days to dry out. Store in a cool, dry spot for winter. Use either peat moss or dry potting soil to store the bulb.
  2. In Tahiti these grow year round because we don't have cold winters.
  3. If you live in areas like California or Arizona. you can cover the ground with a heavy top layer of soil to protect the bulb during the winter months. Otherwise, dig it up and store it for winter.
