The Hilo Beauty has been called “Alocasia Hilo Beauty” since 1981. In 2009, the Journal of the International Aroid Society ‘Aroideana’, Vol 32 page 126, it was officially re-identified as a species of Caladium in a paper and has been recognized as Caladium Praetermissum since. We listed it in both Caladium and Alocasia categories to help you understand.

It grows quickly with generous amount of water and indirect sunlight. It has foliage with incredible colours and veins, almost magical transparency. The caladium is recognisable by its very colourful foliage, which depending on the species, can have very pronounced veins, brightly coloured spots, very contrasting borders, or even a solid colour.

The shape of the leaf is sagittate, giving it a vague resemblance to the leaf of its cousin the Alocasia. On the other hand, its leaf is very thin and lets the light pass through beautifully. The leaves of the caladium are mounted on long stems, it can measure up to 90 cm high, its leaf can be up to 40 cm long.

It originates from the tropical zones of Brazil and is part of the great Araceae family. There are about fifteen different species and hundreds of hybrids, so there is something for everyone.

This houseplant variety is less common than others and makes a fantastic talking piece for any urban jungle for its unique, stand-out patterning. Strong, heart-shaped leaves with a slightly wavy edge and a contrasting pattern: These are the specific characteristics of this plant.

Water when the top inch of soil has dried. It prefers high humidity and bright indirect light. Mist regularly and keep the temperature above 21° C.

Dos and Don’ts after receiving the plant

  • Do not re-pot the plant immediately after receiving. We’ve taken care of that with better pot and rich soil.
  • Keep the plant in indirect sunlight for 3 to 7 days.
  • Always check the soil moisture and keep the plant hydrated all time. Do not over water it.
