A lovely easy care slow growing foliage plant for indoors and for shady garden beds in warm areas. It has compact growth and broad deep green leaves with bold silver markings. The leaves tend to hang down around the pot, making it oustanding for use in hanging containers as well as normal pots. Aglaonomas do best without too much care, as overwatering and overfertilising will lead to problems. Water moderately when the surface of the soil feels dry. Direct sun can cause leaf burn. Brown leaf edges can be caused by cold conditions or too much fertiliser.
