This camo cutie has been the subject of quite a bit of debate within the plant community. Though previously categorized as an Alocasia, in 2009 the Journal of the International Aroid Society ‘Aroideana’ officially re-identified the Alocasia Hilo Beauty as a Caladium Praetermissum. 

Needless to say, this reclassification doesn’t keep us from loving this darling bulb. Its vibrant tropical foliage is absolutely eye-catching and its rapid growth in bright, humid conditions makes it a rewarding plant to care for. Take good care of your HIlo Beauty and you’ll soon see why some still call her an Elephant Ear plant!

Light: Like other Alocasia, the Dragon Tooth thrives in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as the intense rays can burn their tender leaves. Curling and discoloration of the leaves is a possible sign that your plant is getting too much direct sun.

Water: Keep soil moist, but never soggy soil. Water  once the soil dries about two inches down in the pot. A chunky soil mixture with good aeration is key for a happy plant.

Humidity: Moderate to high humidity is best for this variety. We recommend adding a humidifier to your plant care routine or placing it on a pebble tray to help provide humidity if your space is dry.

This plant is poisonous to pets if ingested.
