The Homalomena ‘Emerald Gem’ is a beautiful foliage plant featuring thick, dark green leaves with deep grooves similar to the Rhaphidaphora Decursiva, but a shape that’s more spade-like. This is a great option if you’re looking for something to fill up an empty space on your desk or book shelf since it also has the benefit of being low maintenance. Provide it with indirect light and enough water to keep the soil evenly moist during the warmer months and this plant will reward you with beautiful, rapid growth and jade colored leaves that are hardy and durable!
