Aglaonema Chocolate Care & Info Guide
Hit the lights! Due to its darker leaf colour, the Aglaonema Chocolate will thrive in lower light conditions.
Dodge the drought! The Aglaonema requires its soil to be kept moist at all times so try to avoid letting the soil drying out completely.
Time for a spring clean! Use a damp cloth to remove any dust settling on your Aglaonema’s leaves to keep it in tip top condition.
Aglaonema will thrive in low to bright light levels. The lighter the leaf colour the higher the required light levels. Plain, dark green varieties will thrive in near shade, whereas the lighter, variegated types need well lit, bright conditions. Avoid direct sunlight as this will scorch the leaves.
Keep the soil moist at all times, do not allow it to dry out. Do not overwater as this may encourage root rot. Moderation is the key.
Normal room temperature 18-24°C, however avoid cold draughts.
Chinese Evergreens can tolerate less humidity than some other plants, yet it will still appreciate your efforts to improve surrounding humidity levels, either via regular misting or using a pebble tray.
Slow release fertiliser once a month during the growing season.
