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.
