Add a pop of color to your houseplant jungle with the red aglaonema. The red markings on the leaves make it an ideal houseplant to nestle among other green beauties in your home. The red aglaonema is an ingenious alternative to the red poinsettia during the holidays and a clever gift at Valentine’s Day. This long-lasting houseplant needs a minimum of care to look its best.
The red aglaonema is at its happiest when it gets a couple of hours of early morning sun and then medium light the rest of the day. Place it in an east-facing window for ideal lighting conditions. This plant likes its soil on the dry side, so water it when the top two inches of soil feel dry to the touch. This plant grows compactly; therefore, pruning is not necessary except for clipping the occasional yellow leaf. Feed the red aglaonema with a fertilizer for houseplants. Follow the product label instructions for frequency and strength.
