droopy elephant ears
My Elephant Ear plant gets droopy after 3 leaves grow and some get water falling from the tip of the leaves. Why does that happen? How can I grow more than 3 leaves at a time? It seems that the plant is beautiful but then the leaves start to droop after another one starts to come out. Why does the plant drip water from the tip of the large leaves?

You are most likely overwatering the Elephant Ear plants or the soil is poorly draining the water away.
The droopy leaves along with the Guttation of water through the leaves indicates stress. The process of the water being pushed out through the leaves is called transpiration and is the plants natural process to remove the moisture.
