We kept our elephant ear in the pot and put it in the garage. We have had unusual cold this past week and the leaves and stem are now drooping and wilted. l. Should be cut it back? 2. just leave it along?
As long as the leaves are green, let it be. You didn't say what climate zone you live in, but most types of elephant ear (Colocasias, Alocasias, and Caladiums) prefer more tropical conditions. Some species tolerate brief or moderate periods of cold, but most do not. Also, may species go into dormancy for a few weeks or months.
