Aglaonema commutatum variegate
Aglaonema commutatum, commonly known as Chinese evergreen, is a popular houseplant appreciated for its attractive foliage and tolerance for various indoor conditions. Here’s some information on growing and caring for Aglaonema commutatum:
Light requirements: Aglaonema commutatum can adapt to different light conditions but prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light levels but may have slower growth and less vibrant leaf coloration.
Temperature and humidity: Chinese evergreen prefers temperatures between 60°F and 75°F (15°C to 24°C).
Watering: Water your Aglaonema commutatum when the top inch of soil feels dry. It’s important to maintain slightly moist soil but avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot. Ensure proper drainage by using well-draining soil and a pot with drainage holes.
Soil and potting: Use a well-draining potting mix that retains some moisture. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and regular potting soil is often suitable.
Fertilizer: Feed your Chinese evergreen with a balanced, water-soluble houseplant fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength. Apply the fertilizer every two to four weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).
Pruning: Prune your Aglaonema commutatum to remove any yellow or dead leaves and maintain a tidy appearance.
Propagation: Aglaonema commutatum can be propagated through stem cuttings.
I hope these tips help you care for your Aglaonema commutatum successfully!
