ABOUT OUR AGLAONEMA LIGHT STAR
Hello, I’m Jane the Aglaonema. I’m more widely known as the Chinese evergreen plant, the light star plant and the light pink star plant. I’m a tough cookie and rather low maintenance when it comes to my care. My cool shades of pink are the perfect mixture of calming and captivating. Although I’m quite a common houseplant, that hasn’t stopped me from making a statement with my colourful foliage. I’m a popular houseplant with a vibrant twist and my laid back vibe means I’m not time consuming with my upkeep.
The Aglaonema species is found throughout New Guinea and tropical Asia. I’m just one of over 30 species of Aglaonema and you can find us throughout New guinea and tropical Asia. Although native to a tropical climate we do not need the extra care other tropical houseplants might need. I’m very drought and cold tolerant so if you have a dark spot in your home that needs filling with some colour, I’m the perfect low maintenance plant for you.
I’m ideal for beginners and plant loves alike. My bright foliage is bright, colourful and won’t go unmissed in a dark living room or low light office.
Small Height (including nursery pot) 30-35cm; pot diameter 12cm.
DID YOU KNOW?
In many countries in Asia I’m traditionally given as a gift to colleagues to symbolise prosperity, wealth and good luck.
Jane’s charm will bring colours and life into the darkest parts of your home.
QUICK AGLAONEMA PLANT CARE
Jane will thrive in almost all types of environment as long as there is some natural light.
I need some natural light to survive but can be placed in a room with small windows. Keep me out of direct sunlight as this will burn my leaves.
I like my soil on the dry side. Let my soil dry out in between each watering. This could mean only watering me once every few weeks.
I can tolerate a dry environment and do not need to be placed in a bathroom or near a humidifier.
I don’t need a lot of fertiliser as I’m a slow grower. Use a diluted fertiliser once every 2-3 months in the growing season only.
FAST FACTS ABOUT JANE
Use Jane’s bright foliage to decorate a dark living room or bedroom.
THINGS WE ALWAYS GET ASKED
How do you care for an Aglaonema plant?
The Aglaonema is an easy care plant and brilliant for beginners and forgetful waterers. Jane can cope with cooler temperatures of 15ºC and will not get a chill if placed by an open window. In regards to watering Jane does not need regular watering to survive and her soil should dry out completely before her next watering. In the summer months this could be once every 2 weeks. Jane’s watering schedule should be reduced in the winter months. Alice can tolerate low light conditions and is a perfect plant for a dark hallway or draughty entrance hall. Having said this, she will grow faster in a medium or bright indirect light but this type of light is not essential to her survival.
How often do you water an Aglaonema?
Jane does not need regular watering. She can go many weeks without water and is a very drought tolerant plant. You may notice her foliage droop a little when she is ready for a drink. Always feel the first few inches of soil to make sure it is dry before you water Jane again.
Is the Chinese evergreen plant poisonous?
Yes, the chinese evergreen plant is toxic if ingested. Place Jane on a high shelf, dining room table or dresser where she can't be reached by young children or curious pets.
PLANT STYLING TIPS
Jane is a style icon. She can be placed in a hallway for some added colour or pair her with another low maintenance plant like Zoe the zz plant or Ian the cast iron plant. Her pretty shades of pink are going to uplift any room you decided to place her in.
