6" Homalomena


Homalomena hails from south Asia and the south Pacific. His name in Malayan means "flat moon". Lovely, simple, large, heart-shaped leaves in a medium green with deeply recessed veins borne on upright reddish stems give us a plant that resembles a Philodendron. Full and lush growing, it looks beautiful in a simple basket. Low light tolerance and not needing water very often make Homalomena super easy to have around. The leaves have a nice, mild, anise smell and it is reputed to have some medicinal qualities. Being in the Lily family, watch for shy, pale green, lily type flowers hidden deep in the base of the foliage.
