This tongue-twisting houseplant genus is well known from Sri Lanka to Borneo and Malaysia, but almost unknown elsewhere until very recently. They are elegant foliage plants for indoors or tropical gardens, with glossy heart-shaped leaves reminiscent of their cousins the Alocasia, Philodendron and Syngonium. Sunshine Gem is unusual, as it has lime leaves rather than deep green. Homalomenas love shade, humidity, a little misting now and again to keep looking their best. We love Homalomena for the lime-green colour, the compact size, and because it's fun to say the name
Homalomena 'Sunshine Gem'APPEARANCE : Tropical Asian foliage plant from the Aroid family, with bright green-yellow heart-shaped leaves similar to an Anthurium or Philodendron.
USE FOR : Indoors, or underplanting in tropical shade borders.
PLANTING: Homalomena grow best in indirect light or dappled shade with high humidity. They need a temperature above 5C, preferably above 15C.
CARE: Homalomena are generally easy care and disease-resistant. Water regularly - soil should be not too wet or too dry. Mist the leaves if the air is dry. Apply a slow release fertiliser during spring and a liquid based fertiliser every 2-4 weeks during the warmer months.

YOUR PLANTS:These are tubestock plants, young healthy plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide. May be supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on. These are shipped inside pots for protection in transit. You can see an example in the image gallery.
