Set up the breeding tank (tub) for the big ear HM. Using a 16 gallon plastic tub with 4 inches water. 100 watt heater, java moss. Both male and female are in their jars in the tank. Plan is to use it as grow out after free swimming....

The female is not big ear, so don't know how long before I get any big ear fry....

Doing a sibling breeding is the best way to bring back recessive genes like large pectorals or giants. Its my plan for getting large ears.
And breeding big ears to kings would give you probably mostly regular sized fish with regular pectorals very rarely might you get a king betta with large ears. Sense large size is also a recessive trait.

Sibling breeding can wash out traits. I recommend taking an offspring and breeding back to the long eared parent and again with a grand son/daughter to manifest the trait.
