elephant ears

The edges of my elephant ears are turning a yellowish brown then black. They did the same thing last year. I have them planted in a large pot. Last week I cut them back to the bulb and replanted. What am I doing wrong?

This could be as simple as a watering issue. To much or to little. Make sure the pot is well draining. You don’t want the roots and bulb sitting in soggy soil. This will cause root rot.
Here is a link with care information to refresh you.
