Summer Full Sun Instructions

This center plant is a Alocasia – or elephant ear plant. It can go from part sun to full sun and likes 6 hours AM sun, afternoon or all-day sun.. We love the large leaves that continue to sprout from the bottom outside which means it will be lush and full. If the leaves become too bushy then you can just simply snip them off from the bottom to allow more room for the other plants. Yellow leaves or broken leaves can also be trimmed from the bottom. Yellow leaves can sometimes mean too much water or too little. The best indication is the soil moisture.

Heat, sun and regular H2O will make these plants go BIG. Only water when top 2” of soil is dry. During the high heat of summer that could be every day at times.

When Zinnia flowers start to fade snip off the bloom to just above 2 new leaves. 

Holes in leaves mean slugs or snails  – you can get slug pellets at a garden center. A liquid fertilizer a couple times during summer will keep your plants thriving and colorful.
