Photographs are representative of the species and not always of the specific plant shipped. Normal variations in size, pruning and leaf structure may occur.

Sun: Indirect

Homalomena Selby thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight to prevent leaf burn.

Light: Medium

Provide moderate to bright indirect light for optimal growth. Keep it near a window where it can receive ample natural light throughout the day.

Water: When half dry

Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging, as Homalomena Selby prefers slightly moist but well-draining soil.

Humidity: Medium

Maintain moderate to high humidity levels, ideally between 50-70%. Consider using a humidifier or placing the plant on a pebble tray filled with water to increase humidity levels.

Pet Friendly: Caution

Homalomena Selby possesses moderate toxicity and may trigger adverse reactions if ingested, making it advisable to keep it out of reach of pets. While the severity of the reaction varies based on the quantity consumed, it's prudent to exercise caution with all plants around pets. If your pet typically avoids consuming plants, this one should be safe to have in your home.

Pro Tip

To encourage bushier growth, regularly pinch back the tips of the stems. This practice promotes branching and helps maintain a compact and lush appearance for your Homalomena Selby plant.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
