I keep my Elephant ears in a cooler environment.  I place them in 
plastic bags and put them in the attic where it gets to 45 F during the 
coldest winter months.  I haven't seen any aphid problems on them at 
all.  The Arum under lights in the basement are a completely different 
story.  I have to spray with soap or some other low toxic spray almost 
everyday to control them.

I have used Murphy's Oil soap its cheap and practically the same thing 
as the more expensive "horticultural" soaps on the market. One ounce to 
a quart of water is the  mix I use.
