Aglaonema Creta Care
Light: Aglaonema Creta plants prefer indirect sunlight. Direct sunlight in the morning and afternoons is okay as the light is less harsh. If your room has a window you will be fine, although a Aglaonema Creta will grow faster the brighter the room is.
Water: They prefer to dry out between waterings. Press your finger about an inch into the soil and if it is damp, do not water it. If it is dry it is time to water. In the summer you will water twice as much as the winter waterings.
Soil: Well-draining potting mix will let a Aglaonema Creta thrive.
Humidity: The average humidity in a house is great
Aglaonema Creta Information
Aglaonema Creta is a Chinese evergreen, making it a tropical perennial. There are many variations, or cultivars, and all aglaonema's make excellent houseplants. They are popular for their large, narrow, oval leaves, which come on short stems. Under the right conditions they will flower in the spring or summer.
The Chinese evergreen is one of the most popular houseplants because it is easy to care for and comes in many colour variations. Dark green, silver, red, orange - there are so many varieties.
This is a plant that will add personality to your home decor.
A Chinese evergreen growth rate is slower, which makes it an excellent house plant for beginners and experienced plant growers.
Watering an Aglaonema Creta every two weeks is common, letting them dry out between waterings. This allows the roots to get fresh air before more water is applied. Soak the plant thoroughly once it's dry, let the excess water drain for 5 minutes, place your plant in its pot, and you are good for 2 more weeks.
Placing a Aglaonema Creta in medium bright indirect light is enough to let it thrive. A table, ledge, or desk that is 2 or 3 feet from a window is the perfect amount of light, being sure that leaves are kept out of direct sun. The more sun your plant gets, the more water it will need, which you will learn over time.
