Aglaonema ‘Crete’ (aka Chinese Evergeen “Crete”)

  • Location:

    I am a tropical plant from Asia and New Guinea.
  • Looks:

    I have smooth, glossy elliptical leaves with bright red edges which grow from thick to thin, and pinkish leaf stalks.
  • Height:

    I am a compact variety but I could reach 1.2m if you repot me.
  • Environment:

    I like diffused light - direct sun will scorch my leaves so please keep me away from windows.
  • Flowers:

    I am a foliage plant but can very rarely produce small red berries.
  • Grooming:

    Dust my leaves occasionally and pluck off any dry ones.
  • Life Span:

    I’m easy-going and can live happily for a long time.
  • Feeding:

    Water me thoroughly and mist my leaves in the summer, but reduce the amount of water during winter.
  • Fact:

    I am a new variety of Aglaonema and am actually patented!
