Overwintering an Elephant Ear Plant

My husband recently bought me an elephant ear and a banana plant. I read that with a banana plant, you simply cut them all the way down to the base, cover with mulch and a tarp until spring. Can I do the same with the elephant ear plant, or does it have to be dug up?

It depends on your growing zone. I have to bring mine in, so I dig up the bulb cut all the green off and store in a dark dry cool (but not freezing) spot in the house. Often I find that my elephant ear bulb has split and I have 2 now instead of the one I originally planted.
