    I bought these recently. The previous owner said they are not ricordeas because they grow quite large to about the size of a side plate. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I think its yuma - i haven't seen Florida come in, a few mushrooms on a rock like the Yumas do.
    The floridas usually come in as singels.

    Not elephant ears though.
