ok so I'm wanting my elephant ears to grow really big. does anyone know when is the best time to upsize your pot to encourage bigger growth??? #plantaddict #plantsmakepeoplehappy #elephantearplant
I would wait until the roots start circling the base of the pot at least. But a larger pot won’t really encourage bigger leaves. Alocasia and colocasia (elephant ears) grow with each leaf getting progressively larger than the last leaf. To really boost growth, give it more light and use a fertiliser once a month during spring and summer. To reallllllly boost growth let it grow outside (no direct sunlight between 10am-4pm) hope this helps x
