Description


A wonderful ‘no-fuss’ option for your Aglaonema house plant collection. Glossy, dark green leaves are strikingly marbled with silvery green chevrons.


Chinese Evergreen Maria has a retro-chic quality having been an interior design staple since the 1970’s. It will tolerate more shade and cooler temperatures than other varieties, making it a useful, decorative addition across homes and offices.


 


Light: Aglaonema thrive in most light levels. The lighter the leaf colour, the more light required. Plain, dark green varieties prefer near-shade, whereas the lighter, variegated types need well-lit conditions. Avoid direct sunlight.


Watering: The Aglaonema Maria’s soil should be kept moist at all times. Do not allow it to dry-out. Make sure not to overwater as this may encourage root rot. Moderation is the key.


Temperature: Does well in normal room temperatures: 18-24°C, however avoid draughts as these can cause undesirable temperature fluctuations.


Humidity: Chinese Evergreens can tolerate lower humidity than some other plants, yet it will still appreciate your efforts to improve surrounding humidity levels by misting regularly.


Feed: Slow release fertiliser once a month during the growing season.


Growth: Aglaonema Maria is a slow growing plant with a compact habit. It usually rises to an ultimate height of around 40cm to 50cm.


Toxicity: These plants can cause irritation if eaten and the sap is a skin and eye irritant. Keep out of reach of children and animals.


Air Purifying: Cleans and improves air quality by filtering toxins from the surrounding environment such as Benzene and Formaldehyde.


Origin: Aglaonema Maria is a native of the tropics and subtropics of Asia and New Guinea.
