If you love the look of rhubarb, but would prefer its leaves to be more showy, the Royal Hawaiian Hawaiian Punch Elephant's Ear Colocasia is for you! With bright to deep red ribbing, and fibrant green leaves, this plant is absolutely gorgeous!
Water: Does best when soil is kept evenly moist (but not too wet.) Allow top inch of soil to dry out between heavy waterings.
Light: Bright indirect light to partial shade.
Soil: Light, well draining soil.
Humidity: Colocasias love humidity. Mist often, or use a pebble tray/humidifier to keep humidity levels up.
Fertilizer: Fertilize every 2 weeks with a diluted 20-10-10 fertilizer during growing season. Do not fertilize during winter.
Note: While the tags say that it's a Perennial, please note that it is Perennial for zones 7-11 (up to -18). In Niagara, our temperatures can go far lower, so if being planted outdoors, consider digging up its bulbs to take indoors for the winter, or using it as an Annual, or keeping it safe indoors as a houseplant.
