Red Aglaonema

(Listing for Plant Only, Shop Pots and Planters)

Vibrant | Spiraling | Enduring

Aglaonema is a universally accepted "easy" plant, making it perfect for filling out any plant collection. Plant parents worldwide love telling stories of how easily this plant comes back from conditions that seem extremely difficult to come back from!

The large, pointed leaves grow in a loose spiral around the stem and tend to grow more upwards than outwards. With proper care and time, this plant will usually grow to be about two feet tall!

Lighting: Medium to bright indirect

Water: Weekly, or once the top 1/3 of soil has dried.

Soil/Potting: Plant in a rich organic soil  in a container with a drainage hole and made of slightly porous material like ceramic. Repot annually or when plant exhibits discoloration without the presence of any mis-watering habits

Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recomended for steady growth and to promote flowering

Temperature: Room temp, protect from harsh fluctuations in temperature particularly in the winter

Toxicity: Not deadly, but will cause irritation if ingested by humans or animals. If consumed by a pet, they won't be able to eat enough of it to make them seriously ill - you'll notice them throw it up and likely won't see them chewing on this plant again.
