Office Baby - Giant Elephant Ear
Hello! New to the forum and aspiring to be a pro green thumb :-)
I have a dilemma with a plant that I think needs to be repotted but now am unsure of what to do. I work in an office with an elephant ear plant and I am fairly certain that the plant is root bound and in much need to be propagated (term might be misused, I was planning on separating the three stalks into separate pots.) As you can see the plant has grown so much that pot has fallen over and I have to prop it up.
Since elephant ears are a bulb plant, and I found that they naturally regrow the stalks annually after winter. My question is, what now? Do I replant with the stalks that have grown sideways and hope they correct? Or do I chop the stalks and replant the (supposed) three bulbs? This is also in hopes that the three stalks means that there are three bulbs.
Any guidance would be SEVERLY appreciated. Thank you, Mr. Green.
