Aglaonema wins again with this proud, upstanding addition to the family. Layers of white, rippled and distorted striping zing on a blend of dappled green foliage, outlined with lemony yellow veining. This fresh display of leathery leafage salutes on almost peachy, rigid stems, giving your space a living sense of contemporary structure.
Light: 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.

Humidity: 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.
