Elephant Ear Plants
Q.

Why is my elephant ear plant’s stems so flimsy?

Zone Texas | Averymbryan added on June 23, 2019 | Answered

I keep it well watered, I spray it with liquid fertilizer, and it’s in a really sunny place in my room, but the stems will start to get droopy and squishy, sometimes turn yellow (see the leaf in the back of the plant in the photo). Can someone please tell me what to do to fix this because I absolutely adore this plant and I feel I’ve tried everything.

The fertilizer I spray it with contains nitrogen. I had previously tried doing research to fix the problem, and online it said to find fertilizer with the nitrogen to help. I spray my plant with this as the directions of the bottle say to.

take care of them better, it seems that it lacks protein, you need to add more protein to the plant,http://run-3.online it is best to apply nitrogen at a time to help the plant grow well to avoid future diseases
