HousePlant Identification: Homalomena or Green Gem Plant

Hello Judy,
I’m looking for a name of my plant. it has two kind of lives. One is coming from the bulbs, other is unwinding from
tight slender cone. A plant is doing well, but I’m suspicious it also suppose to bloom.
Thank you very much in advance.
Best wishes

Hi Alex,


Your plant is called an Emerald Gem Plant or Homalomena. There are care instructions in the Popular HousePlant section of the website.


Homalomena is in the aroid family, and produces spathes (what are in the picture above. With some aroids, Homalomena among them, the spaths never open so the flowers can’t be seen.
