    Homalomena Emerald Gem displays gorgeous deep green spade-shaped leaves, making your decor instantly tropical.

    They hail from the warm, humid rainforests of Southern Asia and are part of the Aroid family. It’s a close relative of philodendrons, which means Homelomena is an easy-care houseplant that shares similar care requirements. These plants enjoy indirect light and moderate humidity; well suited to a home environment (but keep away from heaters!). If the plant is placed somewhere too bright, the leaves can get scorched. Keep soil moist using water at room temperature, but don’t allow the plant to sit in water.

    Long slender stems elevate the waxy foliage, which makes the Homelomena a great tabletop plant for tighter spaces. NASA found that these large spade-shaped leaves have excellent air-purifying properties as well, which you can enjoy too.

    The Emerald Gem will make a statement in a corner, on a table, or in a pot in your living space or bedroom. Furthermore, it enjoys the increased humidity of a bathroom environment, which promotes the growth of big, beautiful leaves. Despite its steady growth, this plant doesn't require frequent repotting, making it an easy plant to own!

    Note: Please be aware that this plant may be toxic to animals and children - keep it out of their reach. 

    Follow these instructions to keep your Homalomena healthy and happy:

    Water: Do not under-water or over-water. It's best to water when the top 50% of the soil has dried out. Never water with cold water either, use room temperature water.
    Light: Bright indirect light but can handle some levels of medium light
    Humidity: Regular household humidity is suitable. 
    Fertilize: Feed your plant every 2 weeks with a diluted liquid fertiliser in spring and summer and once every two months during the cooler months.
