I lurk here a lot ! I am totally into tropicals but as I live in B.C. Canada, I do not have the same choices. I found this plant at our local Walmart - can anyone identify it for me ? Some kind of EE ?
To me, that looks like a young specimen of the plant being called 'Hilo Beauty'. Most places they call it Alocasia but in my book there is no way it can be an Alocasia. Caladium is much closer to what it looks like, but it stays up all year and hasn't been observed blooming.
You guys ROCK ! I actually got two of them (if one plant is good then two has got to be better, right ?) and at $4.99 each (even in cdn funds) I thought they were a real deal. So thank you all for your efforts and I am off to plant them outside for the summer in a shady spot.
If I am not pushing my luck - can anyone help me with this one ? I grew it from a seed I picked up at our local Butterfly World gardens.
