Alocasia Hilo Beauty
A camouflage-like pattern of greens and light yellows with bluish-black stems. Thrives in warm, moist conditions. Excellent for the patio.
The enormous tropical foliage of these plants will provide a bold accent in your garden or patio containers. If not in zones 9-10, dig and store in a cool, dry, frost-free location.
Plan on giving plants at least 2-3 inches of water per week.
This plant is not tolerant of lower light conditions though, so make sure the space you’re placing yours in feels very bright.
Keep it uniformly moist and feed it occasionally to keep it growing. A bright location, but with protection from the hot afternoon sun is probably best. The rhizome can be overwintered in a pot of soil inside, but don’t allow it to get below 45 degrees.
