I live in Texas so there is a lot of sun I planted the elephant ears last year and they completely died trunk and all. do they still have a chance of regrowing if all I do is water it?

Depending on if this is alocasia, or colocasia, this could be getting too much sun. I will include articles for both, so that you can begin to find out what happened to them.
