Homalomena Rubescens is the botanical name of Homalomena. It is a leafy, green, and interesting houseplant that is also evergreen and perennial in nature. It is popular for its large, waxy, and glossy foliage. We consider these houseplants as the darling of homeowners due to ease of care, disease-resistant behavior. It can tolerate stress as well as low lighting conditions.
The slow-growing leaves of this plant tend to be heart or arrowhead in shape. Therefore, it is known by the cute nickname Queen of hearts. Its tiny green flowers don’t easily develop petals and are insignificant for ornamental purposes. The big foliage certainly overshadows them.
During summer, Homalomena appreciates being fed many times in a month with a slow-release and organic fertilizer. Due to its inactive nature in the winter months,, you don’t need to feed them additionally.
