    This is a pic. of the elephant ears I dug up, What the heck do I do with it? Do I plant in inside in a pot or do I let it dry out and keep it just the way it is or what.Should I cut off the light colore green around it, they go all the way around it. But should I cut them all the way down. Thank you so much. Margie

    If it was mine, I would store it just the way it is in a dark, coolish place in my basement until late winter. Then I would pot it up and put it in a sunny window :)

    Margie I wish I had the right answer. I have had a dialogue going recently on just this question. I did get some advice. I haven't dug my bulbs yet but did bring the pot indoors. Good luck I'm sure your bulbs will do fine.
