Growing elemental ores is an incredibly lucrative business if you can get it to work, you will be looking at 200k-500k an ore if u succeed. I'll lay all the basic information down and then explain the trickier aspects of gardening for these items.

What you'll need (Per 1 Plant):

1 Porcelain Pot (7-8k ea Prices on Unicorn Server as of March 31, 2005)
1 Tree Sapling (10-12k ea)
2 Crystals of same type (Depends on crystal)
Ability to check plants everyday

The Method:

Plant Tree Sapling into Porcelain Pot
Check Plant Everyday
6-8 Days after Planting you will be prompted to feed plant
Feed with 1 of your crystals
Check plant everyday
6-8 Days after 1st Feeding you will be prompted to feed again
Feed with your 2nd crystal of same type
Check plant everyday
6-8 Days after 2nd Feeding you will be prompted to Harvest
Harvest and hopefully get your elemental Ore

That's the basic method of getting elemental ores. But, for better success you will have to plant/feed/harvest on certain days and certain moon cycles. I don't know the days that will give more success, but I do know that the higher the moon cycle is when you plant/feed/harvest the better the chances are that you will get an ore. Also, u do not want to over fertilize. I tried to get Wind Ores by planting on Windsday, Feeding on Windsday, and Harvesting on Windsday. This resulted in me having MANY stacks of bay leaves and not 1 ore. Apparently a good way to get light ores is to Plant on a Lightsday, Feed both times on Earthsday, and Harvesting Fire/Earthsday. The last statement was made by a friend of mine who has 6+ mules doing plants, and he has EXTENSIVELY tested gardening for Elemental Ores. Good luck!
