A baby plant, that is 3-8 inches tall, will arrive at your home in a 3-inch-deep pot. Then, raise your new baby to maturity under your caring, green thumb.
The Black Ruffle elephant ear has all the great qualities of the well-known Black Magic Colocasia: striking dark purple leaves and deep plum stems. But the Black Ruffle has one bonus characteristic the Black Magic doesn't have: a ruffled texture that adds depth to your planter or garden. If your plant doesn't look just like the picture, give it a little time to grow up. Elephant ears' attributes become more defined as they mature.
