An Alocasia that looks like Caladium! The Hilo Beauty variety bears foliage reminiscent of a camouflage pattern. The pale to dark green arrangement on its large, lobed leaves has made it irresistible. Like the Caladium, it can fall dormant in winter due to lack of light. During this period of hibernation, simply install it in a dark room and stop watering. In the spring, resume watering gradually. She will come back to you in force and become the center of attention again. In order to promote its growth period, it is recommended to provide it with high ambient humidity, regular watering and fertilizer.
Attention! Risk of toxicity if swallowed.
