GENERAL INFORMATION

  • A camouflage-like pattern of greens and light yellows with bluish-black stems.
  • Thrives in warm, moist conditions.
  • The enormous tropical foliage of these plants will provide a bold accent in your garden or patio containers.
  • A top choice for containers where the markings on its heart-shaped leaves can be appreciated up close, Hilo Beauty has become very popular in recent years.
  • Lots of irregularly shaped chartreuse spots and bluish-black stems account for its appeal.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • It thrives in loose, porous, well-drained soils.
  • They can also be grown in a well-aerated, moist potting mix growth medium.
  • One part coarse potting sand or perlite, one part peat, and part soil are used to make the potting soil.
  • It can also be mix with compost.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • When the plant's actively growing, boost the soil's fertility by adding some compost, scratching it carefully into the top inch or two of soil without disturbing the plant's roots.
  • Feed the plant every two or three weeks with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer such as a 10-10-10 formula, diluted at a rate of 1/4 teaspoon per gallon of water.
  • Check the product label for further directions.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Protect it from too much sun (which could scorch its leaves) on hot summer days and, by moving the container into a partially shaded area, such as under tall trees.
  • Keep an indoor-grown plant in a spot that gets filtered light, such as near a lightly curtained south- or west-facing window.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Water the soil well.
  • Give the plant extra water during the dry season, aiming for at least 1 inch per week, including rain.
