Is it possible that the yellow rolled leaf with yellow powder is actually the developing flower of the elephant ear? Here is a photo of what an elephant ear flower looks like:

It's the only explanation I have for the "yellow powder" because the flowers will have yellow pollen. If that's not what it is, please send me a photo for identification.
