   Common Problems Q&A

Why are the leaves on my Homalomena drooping?

Your Homalomena likes to dry out 50-75% between watering, however if you accidentally let your plant’s soil dry out completely for an extended period of time, you may see leaves go limp, droop, and possibly start to brown. If the soil is extremely dry all the way through the pot, a thorough soak is in order.

Why are the leaves on my Homalomena turning yellow?

If there is new growth on your plant and the yellowing leaves are older, particularly at the bottom of the plant, this yellowing is natural. Your plant sheds its old leaves and sends energy to new growth. It is normal to see a leaf yellowing every few weeks. If it is happening more often than that, it can indicate that something is wrong.
