A friend gave me a division of an upright elephant ear plant. It now has 4 leaves and 2 flowers. It is in a container. Will new leaves come after the flowers die and are cut? We live in the highlands of Mexico, the tropics, and this plant is grown successfully.

Here is an article that will discuss how to harvest the elephant ear flower seeds:

And, yes, the elephant ear will continue to grow after these flower seeds are harvested. The plants send out side shoots at the base of the plant.
