The general consensus is that 'Hilo Beauty' Elephant Ear is not really an alocasia, but a hybrid cross of unknown origins. Regardless of the genus, this is indeed a beauty, with a seemingly random pattern of various shades of green on large heart-shaped leaves. As is true of most tropical plants, 'Hilo Beauty' may be moved outdoors in the summer (no direct sun, please) but suffers when the temps drop below 60 degrees F. It also needs higher humidity than most homes offer, so misting, use of a humidifier, or placing the pot on top of a saucer filled with pebbles and a bit of water will help offset a dry environment. Eventually growing two to three feet tall and about two feet wide, 'Hilo Beauty' may start out sharing a pot with other houseplants, but you may wish to move it to its own planter as it gets larger. Assume that 'Hilo Beauty' is unpleasant if ingested (as are all alocasias), so please keep out of the reach of chewing pets and little people.
