Aglaonema Silver Bay Growth
A Chinese evergreen growth rate is slower than some other tropical house plants, which makes it an excellent plant for beginners and experienced plant growers. If you have a busy schedule, this is the plant for you.
Aglaonema Silver Bay Water
Watering an Aglaonema Silver Bay every two weeks is very common. Be sure to let them dry out between waterings. This will allow the roots of the plant to get fresh air before more water is applied.
When it's time for watering, soak your Aglaonema Silver Bay thoroughly for 30 minutes, and let the excess water drain for 5 minutes, place your plant in its pot, and you are good for 2 more weeks.
Some plant growers are concerned about root rot, but if you are letting your plant dry out completely between waterings, you have nothing to worry about. Root rot occurs when the plant is watered too frequently, not how much it is given at one time.
Aglaonema Silver Bay Sunlight
Placing a Aglaonema Silver Bay in medium light, bright and 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 Aglaonema gets, the more water it will need, which you will learn over time. During the winter months your plant will get less sun and need less water. During the summer, more water will be used and your plant will grow much faster.
