Aloha is one of the more striking of the Colocasias. With its two-toned leaves of vibrant green and deep brown-black, this beauty is sure to turn heads. Unlike the Illustris, which has a similar coloration, Aloha has lustrous, pearlescent foliage that shifts color in the sun. Aloha liked well drained soil, but it does need regular watering. It, like many other Colocasia, prefers at least 5 hours of direct sunlight a day. The leaves will be more vibrant if it gets the sun it desires.
