My elephant ears are outdoors, they get around 6 hours of sun light and also shade. Other than rain, I water them a couple times a week and spray leaves a few times a week. They seem to be responding and growing very well. My question is would it be ok to place small decorative rocks around them or sand. They are still fairly small, Thanks in advance.

I think I have the same one. I've got them growing (like weeds) in both the ground and my bog. They're tough! They come back every year and can tolerate the dogs "abusing" them.

Do you mean accent rocks? or like a layer of gravel or sand? Honestly, either one is fine, as long as it is just a layer over the top of the soil and they aren’t actually planted in gravel or sand, which they can be but you would want their roots in the water table like if it was planted in a bog.
