Plant Care

Light

  • It needs medium light to do their best.
  • They can tolerate high light but keep them away from windows with the strong sun coming in or they’ll burn in no time flat.

Watering

  • Water once every 7-9 days in the warmer months.
  • Every 2-3 weeks when winter comes around.
  • Do not water too often.

Temperature

  • Keep Aglaonema away from any cold drafts as well as air conditioning or heating vents.

Humidity

  • Chinese Evergreens are native to the subtropical & tropical regions.
  • They seem fairly adaptable & do just fine in homes which tend to have dry air.
  • If lack of humidity, fill the saucer with pebbles & water.
  • Put the plant on the pebbles but make sure the drain holes &/or the bottom of the pot aren’t submerged in water.
  • Misting a few times a week should help out too.

Fertilizing

  • Aglaonema are not needy when it comes to fertilizing.
  • Recommended fertilizing it once or twice a year, usually during the spring or summer.
  • Use a diluted liquid fertilizer to feed the plant.

 Soil

  • Any good quality (preferably organic) potting soil is fine.
  • Just be sure it’s formulated for houseplants which it’ll say on the bag.
  • Avoid heavy mix, you can up the ante on the aeration & drainage factors which lessens the chance of rot by adding some pumice or perlite.
