Aglaonema: Emerald Beauty
The amount of water your Aglaonema Emerald Beauty requires will depend on whether it’s growing in an area with lots of sunlight or in a more shaded location. Consider the climate where you live and the humidity when working out how much water your plant requires.
Aglaonema Emerald Beauty plants do well with the ‘soak and dry’ method of watering. You can soak your plant and then leave it to dry out completely before watering again. In general, it’s best to water your plant every couple of weeks. You can test the soil by pushing your finger into the ground. Only water if your plant’s soil is dry, as overwatering can cause root rot.
If cooler climates and if your plant is placed in a low light area, it will require less water. Allow the soil to dry out completely before watering again.
This tropical plant is relatively heat and drought resistant. They thrive in temperatures that are at least 60°F. Be careful not to leave your plant outdoors in the winter or near a draughty window. These plants aren’t very cold tolerant, and you may find that your plant begins to wilt and turn brown due to the cold. In most cases, the average temperature of your home will be fine for the Aglaonema Emerald Beauty.
Aglaonema Emerald Beauty can thrive in various levels of light but should not be kept in the full sun. If you leave your plant in the sun, it will likely start to wilt, and its leaves may also get sunburnt. Be aware that your plants can also burn through glass, so don’t leave this plant on a hot windowsill.
Aglaonema Emerald Beauty plants can be kept in partial shade or in rooms with low light. However, this may affect their appearance, and the plant could end up looking thin and leggy as it will grow towards the light. This may make your plant weaker. Aglaonema Emerald Beauty grows well under artificial fluorescent lights, which makes them an excellent choice for offices.
