Botanical Name

  • Aglaonema spp.

This easy-to-grow plant used to be offered to the public only in a green form splotched with darker-green markings. Now, it is being hybridized faster than one can keep track of, and boasts pinks, reds, and peach colors too.

Light

The older hybrids, mostly green colored, can take low light and grow well. The newer colorful hybrids need medium light and do well in an east or west window. If placed in low light, they will lose their bright coloration.

Water

Let the soil dry down 1 to 2 inches before watering. Chinese evergreens also prefer higher humidity, so place them on pebble trays.

Flowers

Aglaonemas will flower in good light, but these plants are grown for their beautiful foliage; it benefits the plant to cut off the flowers so its energy goes to foliage production. The flowering spadix is surrounded by a white spathe.

Size

Ranges from 12 inches to approximately 3 feet.

Propagation

Aglaonemas can be propagated by stem cuttings or division.

Cultivars

  • Aglaonema ‘Anyamanee’ – Usually sold as red aglaonema in the stores. It has variegated dark pink leaves and grows 12 to 15 inches tall.
  • Aglaonema ‘Creta’ – Green leaves with red markings, 12 inches tall (shown).
  • Aglaonema “Emerald Beauty’ – This is one of the older varieties that can take low-light conditions. It has dark-green leaves with light-green mottled stripes and grows up to 24 inches tall.
  • Aglaonema ‘Silver Queen’ – Another older variety but with the opposite coloring from ‘Emerald Beauty’: light-green leaves with dark-green mottled stripes. It also can take lower-light conditions and grows up to 18 inches tall.
  • Aglaonema ‘Pink Dalmatian’ – A beautiful cultivar with pink splashes on shiny dark-green leaves that grows up to 12 to 18 inches tall.
  • Aglaonema ‘White Lance’ – The leaves of this unusual cultivar are only 1 inch wide and a light gray color. It grows 18 inches tall.
