Experience vibrant and textured indoor greenery with the Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema). This popular houseplant is native to Asia, and is renowned for its exotic foliage and variegated, colorful patterns. Considered a symbol of good luck in Chinese culture, Chinese evergreen is easy to grow, making it a great choice for even novice plant owners. Additionally, it helps remove toxins from the air, like benzene and formaldehyde, creating a healthier living or working space.
These plants are a popular choice for houseplants due to their low maintenance and ability to thrive in bright indirect light. Place your Aglaonema in a draft-free area near a window to give it the bright, indirect light it needs to thrive.
This Aglaonema is easy to care for water-wise. Their soil should be kept moist for optimal growth, but excess moisture should be avoided. Water when the soil feels dry to ensure the perfect balance.
Chinese evergreens (Aglaonemas) thrive in a peat-based potting mix with an acidic pH between 5.5 and 6.5. Improve soil drainage with sand, perlite, or bark. Enjoy lush foliage with the right environment!
