Can anyone tell me what I may be doing wrong that is causing my elephant ear plant's leaves to be turning brown around the edges? There are several leaves currently doing this.

Have you recently moved it from one part to another? Did you barely bring it home? I’m not a big gardener, but I know some terrestrial plants tends to shed their leaves trying to adjust to their new environments.

Let’s me tag an actual plant keeper stella1979
