You can easily add these exotics to your surroundings by simply planting the tubers or rhizomes in a soilless mix in your favorite plant pot with drainage holes at the bottom. Add the soil, the rhizomes or tubers, water thoroughly, and place in a warm, 75 to 80 F location to facilitate sprouting. Your plants will emerge within a couple of weeks and grow like a houseplant until it is time to move them outdoors for the summer.

Planting tubers of Caladium, Elephant Ears, or Canna Lily rhizomes is easy. Just follow these simple steps:

Caladium

Caladium

 

Caladiums are grown for their vibrant foliage. They brighten shade gardens with their large, colorful leaves coming in an assortment of colors including white, pink, and red.

Plant caladium tubers indoors 4 to 6 weeks before the average last frost date which is May 15th for our area. Tubers should be planted 1″ to 2″ deep with the knobby side up. The knobs are the tuber’s eyes or buds.

Canna Lily

Canna Lily

Canna are bold, tropical looking plants that bloom over a long period in summer.

Start canna rhizomes indoors 4 to 6 weeks before the average last frost date in your area. Plant the cannas in large pots. The rhizomes should be covered with 3 to 4 inches of potting soil.

Elephant Ears

Elephant Ears

Elephant ears are grown for their large, heart-shaped leaves and make a bold statement in the shady garden.

Start elephant’s ear indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the average last frost date in your area. Plant the tubers 1″ to 2″ deep. Foliage may not appear for several weeks as elephant’s ear tubers are often slow to sprout.
