New plant - looks like an elaphant ear illustris
I picked up a new elephant ear - lovely plant with bergundy on the backside of the legs, dark green on the front with thick light-green veining.
The problem I'm having with this plant is the stems seem to be very weak and inevitably bend over, causing a crease which then the leaf dies. I've lost 4 leaves to this problem. I can't see any signs of mold, mildew, or bugs. I have tried to support the last 3 remaining leaves in an effort to save the plant, but this morning 2 more leaves bent over beyond the length of my stake, so I'm about to lose those and then the plant will be down to its last leaf!!
I read the soil is a bog-loving deep shade plant so the soil is kept moist and it is near a north window.
As you can see, my poor plant is not a happy camper (you can click on the thumbnail for the ginormous version):
What am I doing wrong?? Help!??
