Homalomena rubescens is part of the Araceae family and its native range is Sikkim to Myanmar. Homalomena are the least well studied large genus of Asian Araceae. 'Maggy' is a cultivar; leaf blades are ovato-sagittate, thinly leathery and glossy with a slightly quilted appearance, petioles are light red. 

Genus name comes from the Greek ‘homalos’ meaning flat and ‘mene’ meaning moon. Specific epithet means reddening, or reddish.

Pot: ø 12cm.

Height: Approximately 40cm from base of pot.

Ceramic pot not included.

Light: Bright indirect light, meaning the plant sees the sun for 0-4 hours per day - this could be through trees or a translucent curtain, it’s important for the plant to see the sky in order to thrive. 

Water: Allow the first 2-3 inches of mix to dry out, pour water slowly over the top and allow the water to pass through the drainage holes.

Potting mix: A well draining mix composed of coco coir, perlite or vermiculite, orchid bark and worm castings.

Fertilising: Feed your plant every other watering during the growing season or when you observe active growth. You can dilute fertiliser to half the recommended amount but never add more.

Temperature: 21-27°C.  No lower than 15°C.

Humidity: Homalomena prefer higher humidity but do well to adapt to average home humidity. You can increase humidity by placing the plant on a watered pebble tray or using a humidifier.

Homalomena are toxic, keep out of reach of pets and children.
