1. Light:

Aglaonema prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight for extended periods, as it can scorch the leaves.

2. Watering:

Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it’s essential to find the right balance.

3. Soil:

Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix. A mix designed for tropical plants or general-purpose indoor plants works well.

4. Temperature and Humidity:

Aglaonema prefers warm temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C). It can tolerate lower temperatures but should be protected from drafts and cold extremes.

Maintain moderate to high humidity. If the air in your home is too dry, consider using a humidifier or placing the plant on a tray filled with water and pebbles.

5. Fertilization:

Feed your Aglaonema with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or eliminate fertilization during the fall and winter when the plant’s growth slows down.

6. Pruning:

Prune yellow or damaged leaves to encourage new growth. You can also pinch back the growing tips to promote bushiness.

7. Repotting:

Repot your Aglaonema when it becomes root-bound, usually every 1-2 years. Choose a slightly larger pot and fresh potting mix.

8. Pests and Diseases:

Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests such as spider mites, scale, and aphids. Wipe the leaves regularly to remove dust and discourage pests. If pests are present, treat them promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

9. Propagation:

Aglaonema can be propagated through division. When repotting, carefully separate the plant into smaller sections, making sure each section has roots attached.

10. Cautions:

Aglaonema is toxic if ingested, so keep it out of reach of children and pets.

Remember that individual plant care needs may vary, so it’s essential to observe your Aglaonema and adjust care practices accordingly. Regular monitoring will help you identify and address any issues promptly.
