Aglaonema (Chinese Evergreen) - Assorted Pink/Red (S)
Aglaonema are native to the humid forests of Sulawesi and Philippines. They are a family of colourful and easy to grow houseplants, ideal for a shady spot in a tropical garden or indoors in cooler climates. The contrasting colours of deep greens splashed with pinks and reds, available in a multitude of cultivars with colour and pattern variation, make Aglaonema a highly collectable plant. Aglaonema are perfect for a shaded spot on the balcony/patio or indoors in a well lit room, as a low maintenance and beautiful container plant.
As a native to tropical climates, Aglaonema prefer growing conditions that mirror this environment. When outdoors, plant in a shady spot with indirect sunlight and regular irrigation or watering. Provide free draining soil or a good quality potting mix. When established, water only when the soil is dry. Apply a slow release fertiliser yearly and a liquid feed every three months for plenty of vibrant foliage and to help maintain colour and gloss. Pruning isn't required as you can simply remove the old leaves for a easy tidy up. Ensure to wash your hands afterwards as sap can be irritating to skin.
Allow the soil to dry out between watering.
