Aglaonema 6 inch
Far too often, aglaonema are overlooked as fantastic low maintenance houseplants. And that’s a shame, because they are so versatile! They can handle low light situations (even fluorescent lighting in some cases!), don’t need a ton of babying, and can add a welcome burst of color.
Light: While you’ll see the most growth from your aglaonema in medium light, many Chinese evergreen can handle low light conditions—some can even do fine in fluorescent lighting, making them great options for office plants! Do avoid direct sunlight for your aglaonema though, as it will burn the foliage.
Water when 50% of the soil dries out. Water slowly, allowing it to soak into the soil, until liquid flows through the drainage hole. Discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.
Humidity: Native to Southeast Asia, aglaonema are tropical or subtropical plants that are used to moist soils and plenty of humidity in nature. While they have adapted well to our home environments, many Chinese evergreen prefer more humidity than our homes naturally provide. To boost the humidity levels, try putting your plant on a pebble tray, use a humidifier, or group your aglaonema with other plants.
