Grown & shipped in 6" containers, Hilo Beauty was originally identified as an alocasia.  It was re-classified as a caladium and has been re-named Caladium praetermissum.  They prefer that the soil does not dry completely before watering.  They are relatively fast growers and so keep them fed. 

Alocasia 'Hilo Beauty'


Hilo beauty grows well in deep shade however, bright light will bring out more color in the leaves.  They have a tendency to cluster with time, forming more rhizomes underground.  Each plant will have 4 or 5 leaves and will form a beautiful dome of brilliantly colored leaves in several months.
