Question: 

How do I over-winter elephant's ear?

Answer: 

Elephant’s ear (Colocasia esculenta) is a tropical plant grown for its huge, heart-shaped leaves.  Dig up the plants after the first fall frost.  Cut off the foliage.  Dry the tubers in a warm, dry location for 1 or 2 weeks.  After drying, bury the tubers in peat moss or wood shavings and store them in an area with a temperature of 70 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
