All aglaonema varieties (an estimated 21-14 species) are extremely easy to care for, making them office favorites worldwide. Although aglaonema ‘Silver Queen’ is one of the most popular varieties, you can experiment with cultivars like ‘Suzy’ – you don’t have to stick to ‘Silver Queen’.
Whatever variety you decide to grow, here’s a list of the conditions for your aglaonema plant to care for it properly.
Renowned as a low-light plant, the darker varieties of aglaonema are extremely popular as indoor plants in windowless offices. Lighter or colorful variegated varieties prefer a bit more indirect bright sunlight, but can also survive in fluorescent-lit bright office spaces, not close to a window.
Needless to say, aglaonema does just as well as a houseplant. In their natural environment, they’d be tucked beneath the shade of tropical trees, and would seldom get direct sun, so they thrive even indoors as long as there’s some light.
Aglaonema are sensitive to cold conditions. They should never be placed in a location where temperatures drop below 60°F degrees, as the plant can begin to show signs of cold damage anywhere beneath that range. They should be maintained at 65-80°F.
