Elephant ears falling over

MY VERY HEALTHY AND ESTABLISHED OUTSIDE ELEPHANT EAR TUBERS ARE RISING OUT OF THE GROUND AND SOMETIMES FALLING OVER. Should I add dirt to the top of them?

Yes, this can be fine. This will definitely keep them from falling over in the future.

When you dig them up to overwinter, or divide them out then you can plant them deeper when it is time to plant. In the meantime, topping off the soil will help.
