Elephant Ears need a deep container with moist and well draining soil. In a container planting, a partial sun location is best.
Container plantings need to be watering more often, daily or even twice a day when the weather is warm.

It appears the soil level is quite low on your pot. Is suspect this is not enough soil to sustain the large bulb and root system.

Here is a link to refresh you on the care requirements.
