Origin and care
Light needs: partial shade to shadow
The origin of the Aglaonema is Southeast Asia and belongs to the Arum family. The plant is found in the subtropical rainforests under the dense foliage. The plant grows slowly and the shelf life of this plant is very good and the plant also works to purify the air. The Aglaonema requires little maintenance. Make sure that the roots do not remain in the water. Keep the soil slightly moist during the summer and in the winter the plant may dry up between the waterings, in this way the plant stays at its best. If you spray the plant once in a while, this reduces the risk of spider mite.
To keep the plant dust-free it is wise to put the plant in the shower once a quarter. Cover the soil so that it does not get wet and rinse the leaves both below and above. This also prevents pests.
The Aglaonema is a very strong plant!
