Chinese Evergreen Care Guide
As a mature plant, the Chinese evergreen size can grow up to 2-3 feet tall and 1-2 feet wide. Best kept in containers where the small size can be maintained. Be sure to choose a pot with a drainage hole to avoid root rot.
Chinese evergreen light requires bright indirect light levels to thrive. A south or east facing window is preferred but be sure to choose a spot that is protected from the direct sun. The warm rays can scorch the green variegated leaves if left in direct light conditions for too long.
Chinese evergreen watering should take place as soon as the top 1-2 inches of top potting soil feels dry to touch. Typically depending on temperature and humidity inside your home, this will happen about once a week. Watering can be significantly decreased during the winter months when the aglaonema plant is not in its active growing season.
You should practice pruning Chinese evergreens annually to remove any dead or underperforming leaves. Yellow or brown foliage is typically a sign of under or overwatering.
Chinese evergreen soil needs to be well draining and slightly acidic. Amendments like perlite and peat moss are a wonderful addition to add to your potting mix to help with aeration and drainage.
