Q.Elephant ears leaning, not drooping. Why?
My elephant ears are leaning. They’re healthy but all leaning forward. This picture is about a month old and they’re huge now but they still have a very notable lean forward to them. Do I dig them up and shift them back so they’re straight or leave them?

This is called phototropism, and is common to all plants. They will reach towards the light. Digging them up every day to correct the issue will kill them, and this is a natural process so there is no action to be taken.
Eventually, they will grow out from under the shade of the roof, and have more access to the sun for longer. For now, they will lean out to catch sunlight until it is large enough not to have to.
