Hilo is certainly a Beauty. Those big, soft, nodding, elephant ear leaves in regular old green have irregular patches of what looks like palest, greeny yellow but turn out to be translucent windows you can't quite see through but let light through and show their hair-thin veins traced in green. Get one and peek up close and see! Those leaves can reach 2' long and the plant 4' high. As their Caladium brothers do, Hilo Beauties grow from bulbs and also make baby plantlets at their bases that can be separated to pot up and make more Beauties. Put Hilo Beauty with a couple of different Calatheas or Marantas and a few ferns for an instant jungly rainforest you'll want to spend some quiet time in away from it all.
Quick Care Guide
- Water - Med/High (4): Prefers more water than most, but soil can dry out periodically. Use a spray bottle to mist and increase humidity levels without soaking the soil and roots.
- Light - Medium (3): Plant prefers natural, diffused light. Can be placed in a spacious living room. Indirect light preferred. No direct sunlight on leaves.
- Difficulty - Medium (3): Not too difficult to keep happy, but does require some attention.
