Beauty

The Aglaonema Beauty truly lives up to its name with its vibrant red foliage, speckled with a deep green along the edges. This plant is an eye-catching stunner that brightens up a space with its lush & thick foliage! 

Botanical Name: Aglaonema commutatum.

Water: Give the Aglaonema Beauty a big drink when the top 3 centimetres of soil has dried out completely. A ‘big drink’ is when the plant is placed in a container that can catch any excess water, and water is poured from the top until water can be seen draining out from the bottom of the pot. Once water has come out from the bottom, allow the plant to sit in the water for a few hours to fully soak up the necessary amount. Remember that if the plant is allowed to sit in water for more than one day, the plant may be susceptible to root rot. Always remove excess water to ensure that root rot is avoided. 

Light: This plant enjoys a partly shady spot that is out of direct sunlight, as direct sun can burn & damage the foliage. The Aglaonema Beauty is one of the few plants that can tolerate a low-light situation however, the plant will slow down in relation to growth and pushing out new foliage. If the plant is moved from a low-lit situation to a brightly lit area with slight direct sunlight or vice versa, the plant can go into shock from the lack of acclimation therefore, always ensure that the plant is slowly acclimatised before changing the location.

Potting Media: A premium well-draining potting media is perfect for the Aglaonema Beauty. This plant is prone to root-rot so ensure that the potting media has pumice for drainage and bark too. If the potting media is lacking these drainage qualities, mix a bag of premium aroid potting media with the original potting media to reach a nicely balanced drainage mix. 

Humidity: This plant can tolerate a low humidity environment however, the promotion of foliage growth will be achieved in a high humidity space. Ensure that the plant is kept away from cold draughts, especially in the winter months. If the foliage begins to brown along the edges, this is a good sign that the plant is in need of more humidity (such as a bathroom or kitchen space). 

Temperature: Keep your plant in a space that does not drop below 15 ºC or exceed 30 ºC which means that extra care will be required for those chilly, New Zealand winter months. 

Fertiliser: Use a balanced fertiliser once a month during Spring and Summer, and a diluted solution during Winter. A diluted fertiliser mix during winter will provide your plant with the recommended nutrients required for growth however, as your plant enters the hibernation period it will not need the extra energy to create blooms and new foliage. We recommend the Dyna Gro Foliage-Pro 7-9-5 as this fertiliser contains all the required nutrients that will support foliage growth in your plant.

The Dyna Gro Pro-TeKt 0-0-3 is a recommended supplement that encourages cellular growth and strengthening that will aid your plant in protecting itself against pests.

Dyna Gro GROW 7-9-5, is an all-purpose, nutritionally complete, formula that promotes both foliage and bloom growth containing all 6 essential macronutrients and all 10 essential micronutrients that every plant needs.

These are available in our 'Plant Food' section of the website. 

Toxicity: Toxic when consumed

Origin: Southeast Asia. 

Extra Care + Tips: Aglaonemas tend to keep water in the stalks which means that if the soil is consistently moist and the stems are full of water, the plant is prone to root-rot. To avoid root-rot, avoid overwatering your plant and remember to remove any excess water from the water-catching tray so the plant isn’t sitting in it for too long. 

Fun fact: Aglaonema, known as Chinese Evergreen, has been grown as a luck-bringing ornamental plant in Asia for centuries. This plant is also known for its air purifying properties, specifically clearing formaldehyde and benzene from the air.
