The tropical look in the perfect corner of your home
HOW TO GROW HOMALOMENA HOUSEPLANTS
Just like most tropical plants, homalomena houseplants like warm humid spots in your home or office. Watch for brown tips or edges on the leaves, this will tell you the plant needs more humidity. It will tolerate low-light spots but likes to be in medium light. Make sure to water regularly but don’t soak the soil.
Homalomenas likes bright indirect light. They can tolerate lower light, but growth may slow significantly. If kept in direct sunlight, the foliage may burn.
Allow the top 50% of the soil of your Homalomena to dry out between watering.
Homalomenas like average warmth between 65-85°.
Homalomenas will do well in average household humidity, but will appreciate added humidity from misting or adding a humidifier nearby.
