How do you take care of an Aglaonema?

The right location

The Aglaonema stands naturally under large plants and trees. The plant itself does not grow very large either. Around 90 cm is really the maximum length for an Aglaonema. It is therefore best to place the Aglaonema on a spot with half shade. He is more than happy with that! Does the plant get more light? Then it will grow faster. Although the leaves may burn if there is too much light. In total, Aglaonema as an indoor plant needs a maximum of 3 hours of indirect sunlight.

Watering the Aglaonema

In summer it is important to keep the soil of the Aglaonema always slightly moist. You can achieve this by watering once a week to once every 1.5 weeks. Pay attention to the amounts of water you give. It is not the intention that the plant has constantly wet feet. As soon as autumn arrives, you can shift the watering to once every two weeks. From then on, you may water less. In the winter it is good for the plant to let its soil dry out. In any case, never water more than necessary! Do you? Then the Aglaonema can develop root rot. Not something that will make you and your plant happy.

Plant nutrition

It is not a requirement to feed the Aglaonema plant food. This is because the Aglaonema uses little nutrition. Although you can give plant nutrition once a month in the summer. It is best to use Pokon’s Aglaonema plant food for this. We recommend feeding only from spring until the end of the summer. About the right amounts you can best check the back of the package. In any case, it is wise never to give too much plant nutrition. This can be harmful to the Aglaonema.

Repotting

Repotting the Aglaonema is not necessary every year. However, we do recommend buying a larger flowerpot for the plant every 2 years. It is best to choose a flowerpot that is at least 20% larger than its previous one. This gives the Aglaonema more space to grow and gives the plant new nutrients. Unless, of course, you also use new fresh potting soil. Repotting a plant is best done in the spring at all times. Repotting can damage roots and in spring a plant has the most energy to repair the damage.

Air purifying function

Aglaonema is a very air-purifying plant. Although the houseplant is not very large, it is certainly good at purifying the air. NASA agrees that the Aglaonema is a good air purifier. The plant is on the list of most air-purifying houseplants. So a big advantage of the Aglaonema!

Is the Aglaonema poisonous?

Does your Aglaonema contain fruits/currants? Take care in the neighbourhood with children and pets! The berries of the Aglaonema are slightly poisonous. Has your child or pet eaten the Aglaonema? Then you may notice this by nausea after ingestion. The juice of the leaves of the Aglaonema can lead to skin irritation.

Diseases and peculiarities

In the nature of Indonesia the Aglaonema lives in humid areas. As a houseplant, the air for the Aglaonema can quickly become too dry. Is this the case? Then the Aglaonema can suffer from spider mites. In a few cases, the plant can get shelled or mealybugs. The mealybugs can be combated with a large jet of water. For spider mites or aphids it is best to use a pesticide.
