The Easiest Way To Grow Chinese Evergreen Indoors
Growing a Chinese evergreen, or Aglaonema, indoors is remarkably straightforward, making it a perfect choice for both budding and forgetful
plant parents.
To start, simply cut a healthy stem from a mature Chinese evergreen plant, and place it in a glass jar filled with distilled or fresh rainwater at room temperature.
It's important to submerge only the tip of the stem to avoid root rot. This low-maintenance plant thrives with minimal attention, needing only indirect sunlight to flourish.
The maintenance routine is simple: Change the water every other day, dust the leaves to keep them clean, and add liquid fertilizer once a month to encourage growth.
These plants can begin to show roots within just two weeks under the right conditions. However, Chinese evergreen can be toxic to pets, so keep them out of their reach.
