Hi I'm Aglaonema crete, commonly called the "Chinese Evergreen". I'm perfect for beginners as I'm regarded as one of the most tolerant and relaible houseplants in town. I can grow upt 1.2 metres tall in the right container.
I have smooth, glossy leaves which narrow to long, soft tips. They have bright red margins which vary from thin to thick and expand into large red blotches at random. My petiole (leaf stalk) is pinkish white.
I'm in a 17cm pot and I’m 45cm in height.
I love warmth, minimum 15°C please. I love humidity too so try and recreate this for me.
I hate direct sun and cold draughts. Keep me away from any doors or windows.
LOOKING AFTER ME
I'm easy to care for. Water me thoroughly during summer, allowing my compost to dry out slightly between watering’s. In winter water me every 1-2 months. I like bright light with some sun preferred, but I'll grow in shade. Keep me out of direct sun.
LIVING WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
I’m toxic. Sorry guys.
