So I got an Elephant Ear plant 9 days ago and it looked great when I first got but have since lost one big leaf on its main stock, another leaf has bent over and some of the smaller leaves are beginning to yellow. I tied the bent over leaf to the biggest plant near it to support it for now. The soil was moist when I got it so I waited until just 2 days ago to water and have given it a little plant food. I was going to give it more but I'm not sure how often to give it to it. I'm fresh into the gardening scene so I know very little and don't want to lose this beauty. If anyone could help me id really appreciate it. I'll tag a few pictures to better show the problems.

Hi Joey! the spots on the leaves, the yellowing and droopiness are usually symptoms of over watering. do not water again until the top 2 inches of soil are dry. one of my favorite tools for my indoor garden is my water meter, which tells me when soil moisture is low and they could use another drink. you do indeed have a beautiful plant! hope it does well!

Thanks for the reply. Its doing great now, the yellowing leaves and the one that bent over are all gone but there hasn't been any new problems. I was doing some reading and found that they only typically have 3-4 leaves (2-3 on the younger ones) per 'stock' and generally lose one as a new one comes.
