Elephant Ears Leaves Yellowing Then Browning


brendascroggins1951 added on June 2, 2015 | Answered

Why are elephant ears leaves yellowing then browning and dying? I bought the elephant ear plant for total sun area. Transplanted it in a larger pot and placed in the sun. Now the leaves (one at a time, seemingly) started yellowing, browning and finally dying.

The first thing I would recommend is double-checking that the specific needs of the elephant ear plant are being met by reviewing the following articles:

Then, you will want to review the following article which discusses why plant leaves turn yellow - it will ask you to consider whether you are under or over-watering your plant, to examine your plant for insects, evaluate the lighting the plant receives, etc.
