Belonging to the Araceae family, this evergreen perennial is native to the tropical regions of Southeast Asia. The 'Camouflage' variety of Homalomena is named for its eye-catching foliage, featuring intricate patterns of green, cream, and silver markings reminiscent of camouflage.

🌿 Botanical Name: Homalomena spp. 'Camouflage' (Homalomena 'Camouflage')

💧 Care Level: Easy. Homalomena 'Camouflage' is relatively low-maintenance and can thrive in a variety of indoor conditions.

📏 Size: 'Camouflage' typically grows 1 to 2 feet (30 to 60 cm) tall and wide, forming a compact mound of foliage.

☀️ Light: Place Homalomena 'Camouflage' in indirect or filtered sunlight. While it can tolerate low-light conditions, it prefers bright, indirect light for optimal growth and foliage coloration.

🌱 Fertilizing: Feed 'Camouflage' with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing in the winter months, as the plant's growth slows down during this time.
