An incredibly colorful elephant ear developed in Hawaii by colocasia hybridizer John Cho, mastermind behind the entire Royal Hawaiian series of colocasias, 'Waikiki' is a compact, quick to clump grower that will reach about 36" tall. Each glossy green leaf is marked by a creamy-white blaze in the center, highlighted by pink blushed veins. Very cool! Colocasia 'Waikiki' thrives in rich, moist soil where it will put on a shocking show all summer long. Elephant ears love heat and moisture. Excellent as the focal point in a container or in very shallow water at the edge of a water garden. The white blaze does not show on young plants, so don't be alarmed if your plant is solid green when it arrives. Colocasia 'Waikiki' does develop its color at a younger age than Colocasia 'White Lava'. Give it heat, fertilizer, lots of water, and time to do its thing. PPAF
