Full description

The Aglaonema has rich green leaves that are patterned with thin bands of pattern, easy and simple to care for. Although it can tolerate low light, you might notice the plant growing thin and leggy. The healthiest growth will be stimulated by bright, indirect light, It is a popular option for large office spaces where natural light is scarce. This tropical beauty can withstand cooler temperatures if it is kept dry and in a protected area but it favors a warm, humid environment. Additionally, you can extend its lifespan by removing the inflorescences as they form so that the plant can concentrate its energy on growing strong leaves, The flowers can be removed by simply picking them off once the stalks have turned yellow and floppy .

Aglaonema ‘stripes’ looks best when it’s full and bushy, which can be achieved by taking a few small stem cuttings from the tip of the plant (ideally in spring when the plant is in active growth), and then rooting in water before replanting back into the pot they came from. The cane-like stems will then likely reshoot more than one dormant bud.
