Homalomena are a very easy going plant with striking foliage. They are fans of indirect light and can even tolerate lower light levels. Keep your plant out of direct sun. You’ll find these genera growing happily on the subfloor of Southeastern Asian rainforests, meaning they enjoy a daily misting or a humidifier running nearby. Be sure to retain an even level of moisture in your potting mix to keep the plant happy and the foliage lush. 



Homalomena grown outdoors in North Texas need to be kept in the shade. We do not recommend keeping your plant outside during periods of extreme heat or cold. Regular watering is advised, especially if your region is relatively dry (in comparison to the neo tropics.) Never let your Homalomena become exposed to sub freezing temperatures. When temperatures reach 55 degrees and below, be sure to move your plants inside to a warm & bright environment.
