Aglaonemas are hardy, easy to keep, non fussy plants that are great for a newbie gardner to keep. They don’t need too much water and can handle negligence better than most plants. This week’s video on YouTube is a plant table series featuring the Aglaonema where I talk about how to care for this plant & give you some interesting information too.
The Aglaonema Nitidum Silver Queen (commonly just referred to as the Aglaonema) was a plant that I grew up with. My mom had it in her small collection back then and I probably didn’t appreciate it like I do now. It sat amongst the other ‘indoor plants’ snugly for years and weathered the sometimes overzealous daily watering or the occasional phase of negligence by standing steady. And it always struck me as a common plant that I would get to see here and there on visits to family or in gardens.
Times have changed and from those days where we had a handful of varieties of Aglaonema commonly available, horticulturists have developed a large number of cultivars that are stunning and beautiful. Thailand & Indonesia have contributed to this developing some with unreal colours & patterns. The colours are brighter than that of calatheas, coleus & Crotons sometimes and are much easy to keep. With the surge of houseplants, especially foliage plants and the influx of new cultivars Aglaonemas are very relevant today.
This one my friend gave me before she moved out of the city. I’m so glad I took it in and it has grown beautifully and is completely filling it’s current pot.
Hope you enjoy the Video. Let me know your Aglaonema questions in the description and also what other plant table videos you would like to see down the line.
