FOXY THE AGLAONEMA SILVER
Also known as the Chinese evergreen plant. The Chinese evergreen plant is native to South East Asia.
The Aglaonema Silver is happy in all types of light. She is well known for being low light tolerant but will grow faster in a brighter light. She’s perfect for a darker room or for the winter months when the days are shorter.
The Aglaonema Silver can go make weeks without water and prefers her soil to be on the drier side. She’s an excellent plant for the frequent travellers who might not be able to water very often.
The Aglaonema Silver prefers a humid environment but is also happy in normal household humidity levels. Misting her leaves or placing her in a bathroom can help with higher levels of humidity.
The Aglaonema Silver can tolerate temperatures between 16-30°C. As long as the indoor temperature doesn't dip lower than 16°C Foxy will be happy.
Foxy does not need high amounts of fertiliser. Fertilise her twice every growing season with our fortifying fertiliser to avoid burning her roots. Do not fertilise in the winter.
The Chinese evergreen doesn’t mind being root bound. This could mean repotting only once every 2-3 years. You will notice her nursery pot begin to buckle or large roots will stick out from the bottom, this is a sign she is ready to be repotted with fresh potting mix.
TROUBLESHOOTING YOUR AGLAONEMA SILVER QUEEN
Yellow leaves - Yellow leaves are usually caused by overwatering and under watering. Allow her soil to completely dry out and only water when the first three inches of soil feels bone dry to touch.
Leaves drooping - The Aglaonema Silver foliage naturally droops a little. This is completely normal.
Browning edges/patches - This is a sign that Foxy is suffering from lack of humidity. Place her in a bathroom or on top of a pebble tray.
