Elephant Ear Plant
I have an elephant ear plant that I planted indoors and it's doing great. I just need to know when a leaf does die, do I prune just the leaf off or the entire stalk? One got heavy and the stem folded, so I propped it up but eventually got too weak, so I cut it at the fold and even though a new leaf was starting below the cut, it died as well. Thanks for any help, Doug
You should cut the leaf and stem as close to the trunk as possible, without damaging the trunk. Since your elephant ear plant is indoors, it needs plenty of light. High light will make the leaf stems not only shorter, but much stronger.
