Commonly called the “Chinese Evergreen”, this plant is native to the tropical forest floors of Asia.
Green varieties of aglaonema can tolerate low light, but the colorful and variegated ones will maintain their luster in medium to bright, indirect sunlight. They should never be placed in direct sunlight. They can grow under artificial lighting, making them ideal for offices and interior low-light spaces.
It is preferable to keep your soil slightly moist, letting it dry out in between waterings. To avoid pooled water at the bottom, ensure that you are using a pot with holes for drainage and emptying the water tray of any excess water. In general, your plant will benefit from being watered once every two weeks.
This plant comes with the lovely blue ceramic pot shown.
