Potted Elephant Ear Is Now Too Big For My House
My potted elephant ear plant is huge, about 7ft tall with circumference of about 6 inches. Can I cut it off at the base and start over? Will cutting it down like a tree kill it? It’s just gotten too big for my house and I can’t transplant it outside, too cold in the winter. I’ve always had it as an indoor plant

You should be fine cutting it down to the base. Those who overwinter their elephant ears cut them back before storage. It should grow new stems.
