BloomBox Club Plant Care Hub
(aka Chinese Evergeen “Crete”)
I am a tropical plant from Asia and New Guinea.
I have smooth, glossy elliptical leaves with bright red edges which grow from thick to thin, and pinkish leaf stalks.
I am a compact variety but I could reach 1.2m if you repot me.
I like diffused light - direct sun will scorch my leaves so please keep me away from windows.
I am a foliage plant but can very rarely produce small red berries.
Dust my leaves occasionally and pluck off any dry ones.
I’m easy-going and can live happily for a long time.
Water me thoroughly and mist my leaves in the summer, but reduce the amount of water during winter.
I am a new variety of Aglaonema and am actually patented!
