Chinese Evergreen Red Wishes

$30

Chinese Evergreen Red Wishes, aka Aglaonema Red Wishes, is a flowering Aglaonema that offers showy, variegated foliage with colourful pink and green patterns. The Chinese Evergreen plant family is among the top 50 in B.C. Wolverton’s list of houseplants that purify the air and is also on Nasa's list of air purifying plants. They have been found to be excellent at removing benzene and formaldehyde from the air inside your home or office! Not only that, but they are a rather hardy tropical, where they can handle most light and watering conditions.

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, as it is too intense for them. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is fine and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.
The minimum light requirement for them is 3 - 6 feet away from the nearest light source. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window. Although they can handle some lower light, remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They need to be watered when the first 1 - 2 inches of soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again as they can be prone to root rot.
It can survive in a low humidity environment, but it will thrive with higher humidity levels.
If you mist it daily, or keep a humidifier around your plant, it will really help the health of the leaves. Or let it steam in the bathroom once in a while as you relax!
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
