Kalei's survival guide

On island time

Aloha! Meet Kalei, our most colourful islander. She’s always got a flower in her hair and shells around her ankles. Kalei enjoys preserving the beauty of her home, befriending the local wildlife, and exploring the wonders of the sea. Don’t be shocked if you see her using waterfalls as a slide or cruising with the Honu—that’s the way we do things on the Big Island! If Disney characters were real, she’d 100% give Lilo and Moana a run for their money.

How to care for Kalei

Adding a Hibiscus plant is our favourite way of adding a tropical vibe to your patios and gardens! These beauties are the perfect flowering plant to add colour and vibrancy to any outdoor setting. Hibiscus care is fairly easy: the perennial Hibiscus does best in full sun outdoors, with frequent watering during the hot summer months and well draining soil. Bring your plant indoors over the winter months to prevent freezing. It’s likely easiest to keep your plant potted rather than planted in a garden bed to ensure you can bring it inside when temperatures cool down. These tropical plants do like to be slightly rootbound in their pots as well, so hold back on repotting right away! Hibiscus flowers are known to bloom for a short period of time—typically, only 1 to 2 days. While the individual blooms are short lived, they will continue to flower repeatedly from spring until fall.

Oh no. I am sold out! :(
