Homalomena Sekadau South is a captivating and unique plant that belongs to the Araceae family. Known for its striking appearance and vibrant foliage, it is a popular choice among plant enthusiasts and collectors.

This particular variety of Homalomena originates from the region of Sekadau in West Kalimantan, Borneo, hence its name "Sekadau South." It has gained popularity due to its distinct leaf coloration and pattern, making it a standout addition to any plant collection.

The leaves of Homalomena Sekadau South are broad, elongated, and heart-shaped. They grow in an upright manner and can reach a moderate height of around 30-60 centimeters (12-24 inches) in a well-established plant. The leaf coloration is a mesmerizing blend of deep, velvety green with prominent silver or metallic veins running across the surface. This contrasting pattern adds a touch of elegance and visual interest to the overall appearance of the plant.

One of the striking features of Homalomena Sekadau South is its ability to produce new leaves that emerge in a striking pinkish-red color. These emerging leaves gradually transition to their characteristic green with silver veins as they mature. This color transformation adds a dynamic element to the plant and creates a captivating display of different leaf hues.

In terms of care, Homalomena Sekadau South thrives in warm and humid conditions, replicating its natural tropical habitat. It prefers bright, indirect light, but it can tolerate lower light levels as well. Maintaining a temperature range of 20-30°C (68-86°F) and a relative humidity of around 60-80% is beneficial for its optimal growth.

Regarding soil requirements, a well-draining and nutrient-rich substrate is essential. Regular watering to keep the soil evenly moist, without allowing it to become waterlogged, is recommended. It is also advisable to provide occasional misting to enhance the humidity levels around the plant.

Homalomena Sekadau South is an excellent choice for both indoor and greenhouse cultivation. It can be showcased as a specimen plant or included in a mixed planting arrangement to create a lush and visually appealing display. Its unique foliage and stunning coloration make it a captivating centerpiece or an eye-catching addition to any plant collection or interior space.

Overall, Homalomena Sekadau South is a remarkable plant that combines striking leaf patterns, captivating coloration, and relatively easy care. Its aesthetic appeal and tropical charm make it a sought-after plant among enthusiasts, adding a touch of natural beauty to any indoor or greenhouse setting.

        Excellent TC!

        This is the second time ordering and these TC do not disappoint! Sooo many plants in each culture and all perfectly grown.

        Great tissue culture

        Shipped quick and arrived quick. So excited to see these grow in. The cup was packed so full with plants and had a nice layer of the nutrient gel that it was hard to pull the plants out without tearing any leaves, stems, or roots.

        Beautiful aquarium plants

        Beautiful aquarium plants

        Arthur C.
        Homalomena sp. Sekadau South in Vitro

        First, the order I placed with Aquarium Plants Factory was my first venture into tissue culture plants and I couldn't be more pleased. When they arrived at my residence in Georgia (shipped in the August heat) they were still cold from the factory and all the plants arrived in excellent condition.

        Secondly, the Homalomena sp. Sekadau South will make an excellent plant once it grows in. The leaves were full and a beautiful vibrant green color. They have already grown an inch since I put them in my tank without CO2. As I previously said, I couldn't be more pleased with my order.

        Collin B.
        Homalomena sp Sekadau South in vitro

        A great deal. I received five nice sized, health plants in the one container. They transitioned from cup to aquarium without an issue. Very happy.
