One of the easiest of all houseplants to grow, Aglaonema is also one of the most stylish. A relatively new variety to the houseplant world, this stunner shows off dark green leaves elegantly flushed with bright red or pink. Its colorful foliage makes Red Aglaonema a perfect home-decor accent. It’s gorgeous on desks or tabletops, as well as coffee tables and side tables in dens, living rooms, and bedrooms.
The darker green varieties of Aglaonema can grow in near shade, while the variegated varieties require brighter light. Do not expose any Aglaonema to direct sun. Water thoroughly in the summer and mist the plant often to raise the humidity. During the winter, reduce watering but do not let the plant dry out completely. Avoid over-watering. Well-Drained potting soil is perfect. Be sure to keep it away from drafty windows or vents and the warmer the spot you can find, the better.
