Origin and care
The origin of the Aglaonema is Southeast Asia and belongs to the Arum family. The plant is found in the subtropical rain forests under the dense foliage. The plant grows slowly and the shelf life of this plant is very good and the plant also cleanses the air. The Aglaonema requires little maintenance. Ensure that the roots do not remain in the water. Keep the soil slightly moist in the summer and in the winter the plant may dry up between waterings, this way the plant remains at its best. If you spray the plant once in a while, this reduces the chance of spider mites.
To keep the plant dust-free, it is advisable to shower the plant once a quarter. Cover the soil so that it does not get wet and rinse the leaves both below and above. This also prevents vermin.
