Plant Care Guide
Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate low light as well. Avoid direct sunlight.
About once every 10-14 days. Allow soil to mostly dry out—but not completely. Water less often in winter.
Level of Care
Easy! Just make sure the plant isn't in direct sunlight and don't overwater.
The NASA Clean Air Study has ranked the Aglaonema as one of the most efficient houseplants that remove formaldehyde and benzene from the air we breathe.
Feed with a mild liquid, indoor plant fertilizer about 1-2 times a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize in winter.
Prefers warm conditions above 60°F. Keep away from drafty windows and air conditioners.
A peaty All-Purpose potting soil with good drainage works best.
Pruning & Propagation
Prune yellow or damaged leaves by cutting to the leaf node. If leggy, prune stems down to 4-8 inches tall to stimulate new growth. To propagate, large plants can be divided.
Sorry! Plant contains very sharp calcium oxalate crystals that, when eaten, cause mouth and digestion irritation.
