Homalomena houseplants do well in medium to low light exposures but truly thrive in medium light conditions. An over abundance of sun can scorch the foliage, causing burnt spots on the leaves.
Re-pot only when it has become root-bound in its existing container. Smaller pots help prevent over-watering. Plant a homalomena in a well-aerated houseplant soil that drains quickly.
Water well and and keep the soil moist, not soggy wet. Dry soil will turn the foliage yellow and spartan. Low humidity will cause browning along the leaf edges. Don’t let homalomena to dry out.
Toxic to animals and humans when ingested.
