Elephant ear won’t stop flowering

Zone 32539 | Jessicameyers03 added on April 3, 2019 | Answered

My elephant ear isn’t producing new leaves anymore, just flowers. We’re on 6 flowers now in about 2 months. The newer leaves that produced flowers never got big like the older leaves. Not sure if I’m doing anything wrong.

When plants flower and produce seeds they will typically not put on any new growth at that time. You can go ahead and cut off the seed pods and the spent flowers after they fade so that your plant doesn't go through the effort of producing seeds (unless you want the seeds.) That will help your plant save its energy and begin producing new growth sooner!
