The darker green varieties of aglaonema can grow in near shade, while the variegated varieties require brighter light. Do not expose any variety of aglaonema to direct sun.
A well-drained, lightly acidic potting soil is perfect for aglaonemas.
Water thoroughly in the summer and mist the plant often to raise the humidity. During the winter, reduce watering but do not let the plant dry out completely.
Temperature and Humidity
These plants do not like cold drafts or temperatures below 65 degrees. Be sure to keep it away from drafty windows or vents and the warmer the spot you can find, the better.
Due to its high humidity requirements, some growers consider aglaonema to be a greenhouse plant.1 It will do best in the warm, humid, and bright environment of a greenhouse, but it can be successfully grown indoors by coming as close as possible to these conditions.
Feed your aglaonema with slow-release pellets or liquid fertilizer during the growing season.
