Is the .htaccess file in a folder, called home?  Just DirectoryIndex would
be sufficient in that case (but it will not redirect the browser, it will
just serve home/index.php).

Rewrite isn't always redirect.  Did you mean a HTTP redirect using 302
Found, or a rewrite where /home is an alias for /home/index.jsp?
