Philippine Evergreen,Aglaonema commutatum
The Philippine Evergreen is one of the most durable houseplants and is fairly adaptable. She will do well in a room that gets a medium amount of natural light, placed within 5 feet of a window. Bright, sunny, or overly warm windows should be avoided. Rotate the plant occasionally to encourage even growth.
The Philippine Evergreen will do well in medium to low light conditions or indirect sunlight. She can even tolerate fluorescent lighting conditions. Direct, bright sunlight should be avoided as it can scorch the leaves.
The Philippine Evergreen can tolerate less water than most other houseplants. Water the plant when the top 2 inches of soil are dry. When watering, remove the plant from its decorative planter and water with fresh water lightly and slowly from above, allowing water to soak through to the roots. Tip out any excess water before returning the plant to its decorative planter. Reduce watering during the cold season. Clean the leaves occasionally by wiping them down with a soft, damp cloth.
Does well at room temperature between 60°F - 77°F. Keep the plant away from drafts and avoid cold temperatures.
Prefers higher levels of humidity, around 75% or above. If the air around the plant is too dry, use a humidifier or occasionally mist the plant to increase humidity.
The plant can live happily in the provided grow pot for up to a year. Check if the plant is ready to be repotted by touching the soil and seeing if it has become loose, or if the roots have filled the bottom of the pot. Repot using a rich, well-draining soil, or an equal mix of potting soil, perlite and sand. When your plant is ready to be repotted, you can follow our simple how-to guide.
