Q.Should I Use A Stake And A Nylon Tie To Help My Elephant Ear Plant From Drooping Over?
With this plant I’ve noticed once it starts drooping downwards it would turn yellow and wither off. I was wondering if a stake could help them stay up since they are kind of heavy? I bottom water every Sunday and sometimes it lets me know it has too much water so I don’t think it’s a watering issue? Are there any other reasons why it’s doing this? The first time it happened another ear bloomed but recently another ear has withered away.

It looks like you need a larger pot. I also think it may be getting too much water. Yellowing leaves is a good indicator. The soil should be rich and moist, but not wet. Let the top start to dry before watering again. Give the plant at least 1/2 day of full sun.
