taro plant or taro seed?

Does anyone know where to get the taro plant or taro seeds in TX? I saw elephant ears in Home Depot this March but not sure if they are the same thing...

You can look for taros at Indian or any asian markets. Like potatoes these if kept for longer time will develop sprouts and you can directly plant in soil they just produce lot of taros and the leaves are very decorative.

Agreed. There are different varieties. Best to stop by your local Asian grocery for plant starts.
