The Homalomena Selby features gorgeous mottled foliage that has various shades of light and dark green. The leaves are oval in shape and are very thick. This is an uncommon type of houseplant, but is very easy to care for and it’s a great plant for beginners!

Place in bright, indirect light. This is an understory plant in its natural environment, so it can handle lower light conditions. An eastern or western facing window is ideal, but it can handle a north window if placed right next to it.

Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry. Do not let dry out too much between waterings. Brown tips will appear on the leaves when it has dried out too much between watering sessions.

Be careful if you have pets, since this plant is toxic to cats and dogs.
