Can I save my elephant ear?
Essex County, MA, United States
My arch-enemy woodchuck ate all of the 3 leaves off of the first elephant ear plant I’ve ever planted. Including leaves it was about 2 feet tall with 3 leaves and a 4th tender leaf. He ate the 3 leaves in one day, then came back for the last leaf yesterday.
I caught the woodchuck in my Havahart trap last night…yeah! So now I’m wondering…..do I have any hope to recover my elephant ear plant without any leaves on it? Should I cut it down or what? Thanks in advance for any advice.
UPDATE 10-06-08: I left it alone and it recovered great! After watering and the summer months have now passed my plants look great. Each has about 8 big leaves and the plants are about 2.5 feet tall. Thanks for the great advice!
