Aglaonema Plant Care Guidelines

Aglaonema, commonly known as Chinese evergreen, is a popular houseplant known for its attractive foliage. Here are some care tips to help you keep your Aglaonema healthy and thriving:

1. Light

Aglaonema prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate low light conditions, but it may not grow as well or produce as many vibrant leaves. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

2. Humidity

Aglaonema appreciates higher humidity levels, but it can adapt to normal indoor humidity. To increase humidity, you can use a humidity tray, a room humidifier, or mist the plant regularly.

3. Watering

Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it’s important to let the soil partially dry before watering again. Water less in the winter when the plant’s growth slows down.

4. Soil

Use a well-draining potting mix that retains some moisture but doesn’t become waterlogged. A mix of potting soil and perlite.

5. Fertilization

Feed your Aglaonema with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season.

6. Pruning

Trim yellow or damaged leaves to encourage new growth and maintain the plant’s appearance. You can also cut back leggy stems to encourage bushier growth.

7. Pets and Diseases

Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests like spider mites, mealybugs, and aphids. If you notice any issues, treat the plant with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Ensure good air circulation to prevent fungal diseases.

8. Propagation 

Aglaonema can be propagated through stem cuttings or division. Cut a healthy stem with a few leaves and root it in water or a suitable potting mix. Division is typically done during repotting when the plant has outgrown its pot.

Remember that Aglaonema is generally considered a low-maintenance houseplant. With the right care, it can thrive and bring beauty to your indoor space.
