An interesting plant that's been used for thousands of years medicinally in Sri Lanka and India, Homalomena is a worthy addition to any collection that's extra fun to show off!
This plant stays relatively low to the ground as it grows but fills out densely, which makes it really good for spaces like bookshelves or counters.
Lighting: Medium to high indirect light.
Water: Water once the top inch or two of the soil has dried out. Do not water with cold water. The leaves will droop slightly when it's ready for water.
Soil/Potting: Plant in a rich, organic soil in a container with a drainage hole and made of slightly porous material like ceramic. Repot annually or when plant exhibits discoloration without the presence of any mis-watering habits.
Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recomended for steady growth and to promote flowering.
Temperature: Room temp, protect from harsh fluctuations in temperature particularly in the winter. Do not allow to get cold.
Toxicity: Unsafe for consumption by pets and humans.
