The first few leaves are always small, but they will increase in size which each new leaf.


RE: tiny leaves on elephant ear plant

Most baby elehant ears have very small leaves. Mine was a huge bulb about 7 inches long and 3 inched wide, and it had a pretty big first ear size, but a smaller blub or less roots will result in smaller begining leaves, but by late july or so it should be much larger.

good luck
