A Chinese Evergreen plant is one of the easiest and best-looking houseplants to have in your home or office. Aglaonemas, the scientific name for Chinese Evergreen plants, are a hardy hybrid from the Aroid family and originally came from the subtropics of Southeast Asia. Chinese Evergreen plants can be used as upright table plants or, as they get larger, bushy floor plants.
NASA lists the Chinese Evergreen as one of its top ten plants to clean the air of harmful toxins.
These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children.
LIGHT CONDITIONS: Chinese Evergreen plants are probably the only indoor plant with large, colourful, variegated leaves that can live in low-light conditions. If placed in medium light, these plants grow more quickly.
WATER CONDITIONS: Allow the top 25-30% of the soil to dry out before watering. When the soil of a Chinese Evergreen plant is too wet, the stems become mushy and die. When the soil gets too dry or too wet, yellow leaves develop.
