How to Plant an Elephant Ear Bulb – Tips and Tricks
Planting an elephant ear bulb can be an extremely rewarding experience, but it is also one that requires a certain amount of care and planning. It is essential that you know the exact time of year you wish to plant it. If you do not want to wait too long, then you need to plan ahead.
The first thing you want to do is find a place where you can plant your bulb. This may be in a container garden, a small patch of dirt or even on a piece of furniture or another surface. The reason for this is because elephants are known to love to dig in these places. They will also not like to get their feet wet, so you may have to make sure that you have a very soft and moist soil before you plant your bulb.
Once you have found a location where you would like to plant your elephant ear bulb, you will need to dig the area out first. You will need to ensure that it has enough room to expand, so if you are planting a larger bulb then you may need to move it to a smaller area before you plant it. You will also need to consider the water requirements of your plant, as this will determine the type of soil that you will need.
Once you have excavated the area you need to plant your bulb, you will then need to decide whether you want to plant it in soil or if it should be planted directly into the ground. The soil should have enough water to soak into the soil, but not enough to drown the bulb. In order to determine whether you need to water the bulb or not, you will need to dig it as deep as you can, so that all water will drain into the soil.
The next thing you will need to know about how to plant an elephant ear bulb is that they do not grow very well in direct sunlight. Because of this, you will want to place your bulb in a shaded area where it will receive some direct light and shade when it is not being used. You may even want to install a piece of equipment on your window to ensure that you are planting your bulb into the shade every day. Make sure that there are no strong winds blowing in the wind direction as this can cause damage to the bulbs.
Knowing how to plant an elephant ear bulb is not the only thing that you need to know, although this is often the most important part of the process. It is important that you understand what you should keep in mind when it comes to watering, fertilizing, repotting and protecting your bulb. Your elephant ear bulb will not thrive if it is constantly being over-watered.
If you want to fertilize your ear bulb, then you will want to fertilize your bulb in the spring after the first three or four frosts. Just remember that fertilizers may not be appropriate for plants that have been in containers for several months. There are many fertilizers that are meant specifically for growing in containers and this may mean that they are inappropriate for an elephant ear bulb.
Remember that protecting your elephant ear bulb is important for both its health and aesthetics. This means that you should not prune or otherwise cut it, unless you have absolutely nothing else to do with it.
Prune any parts of the bulb that have been damaged and keep them trimmed until you are ready to replant the plant. You should avoid pruning around the base of the bulb. This may cause the bulbs to begin shedding hair. This is especially true if you prune the base of the bulb after it has been harvested from the tree. If you do this, the hair may actually attractants to the plant.
When it comes to reporting, there are a couple of things that you should be aware of when it comes to reporting your elephant ear bulb. Keep in mind that reporting should be done at regular intervals, which is not daily. If the bulb has been in the pot for more than three months, then it is best that you do not report more than two times a year, as the plant will be unable to absorb moisture.
If you want to keep your elephant ear bulb healthy and happy, then you should make sure that it is fertilized at least once a month. However, you should also make sure that the fertilizer does not sit in the root of the bulb. You want the fertilizer to remain in contact with the plant to provide nutrients. Fertilizer also has to stay in contact with the plant because if it sits in the roots it can cause your bulb to die.
