Homalomena ‘Emerald Gem’
Light: Homalomena Emerald Gem likes bright indirect light. They can tolerate lower light, but growth may slow significantly. If kept in direct sunlight, the foliage may burn.
Water: Allow the top 50% of the soil of your Homalomena to dry out between watering. They do not like soggy soil, but also do not like to dry out for extended periods of time. *When planting in a pot without a drainage hole, avoid over watering by estimating 25% of the container’s overall volume, with appropriate drainage materials incorporated when planting.
Environment: Homalomena will do well in average household humidity, but will appreciate added humidity from misting or adding a humidifier nearby.Temperature is very important to Homolomena. Keep it in an area with temperatures between 65-85 degrees.
Toxicity: Homalomena is potentially toxic to pets
Of Note*:You may notice the bottom leaves occasionally yellow and die. Not to worry–this is normal. You can cut them off using clean, sharp shears. If this is happening rapidly, it can indicate that your plant is cold, is staying too wet, or is staying too dry. Printable Care Sheet
