Care and Maintenance 

Light

Most of the Aglaonema varieties can tolerate low light. Some depend entirely on fluorescent light, thus ideal for offices. The variegated ones love sunshine, but you should be careful not to put them in direct sunlight.

Humidity

Always be on the Lookout for the leaves. If the leaves’ tips turn brown, the air around is too dry. A humidifier can help you increase humidity. Alternatively, you can put water and pebbles in a container and place them near the plant.

Water 

The water requirements for these varieties depend on the season. During the dry season, water more and decrease watering during winter. Excessive moisture may result in the rotting of the roots. Always ensure the soil is well-drained.
