This plant is often prescribed as a good beginner plant, and for good reason. It can survive in a multitude of different conditions and takes things in stride. Hailing from humid, shady forests of Asia, this plant’s natural habitat is what makes it so well suited for life in our homes.
While it may be easier to keep houseplant there are still things to know before bringing home one of these silvery beauties, and we have all the tips you’ll need!
- Chinese Evergreen Silver Bay is a plant that has been growing in shady forests for thousands of years. It’s well adapted to home conditions and will thrive as long as you keep it in bright, indirect light.
- As with many plants, you’ll want to water your Aglaonema ‘Silver Bay’ when about half of the soil has gone dry—but be careful not to over-water! While Aglaonema comes from humid conditions it can survive without added humidity. Providing extra humidity certainly doesn’t hurt though!
- These beauties enjoy temperatures anywhere between 60-85 degrees (F). If the temperature drops below 50 degrees (F), the plant will stop growing.
- As your Aglaonema grows it’s not uncommon for it to drop its lower leaves and develop something like a trunk. Don’t be worried if yours begins to grow like this! As long as the plant is overall healthy and still growing there isn’t anything to worry about!
