Care & tips Aglaonema Maria
As mentioned, the Aglaonema Maria is not a difficult plant to take care of. Make sure you avoid too much sunlight. The Aglaonema Maria prefers a (semi-)shady spot. It will not tolerate direct sunlight as it can affect the production of the beautiful leaf markings. It is best to place the plant in a shady spot.
As for water, we recommend rooting two fingers into the earth to feel how the soil feels. If it is very dry, you can give the plant some water. If the soil is very wet, we recommend that you wait a little longer before watering.
Water requirements for Aglaonema Maria
Try to keep the soil of the Aglaonema Silvergreen slightly moist, but beware of too much water. Too much water can cause root rot and the plant may die. We recommend to with two fingers in the soil to know if it is already time for watering. If the soil is already very dry after two days, you can water your Aglaonema again. If the soil is still very wet after a few days, we advise you to wait a while. It is better for the soil to be a little too dry than too wet.
Light requirements for Aglaonema Maria
We recommend placing the Aglaonema Maria in a spot in normal daylight that is also shaded during the day, or even in a shady spot. Because of its origin in the tropics and its way of life here, the plant will not tolerate too much sunlight. When there is too much sunlight, the stems will grow hard with few leaves or the leaves may burn. Also, the leaf markings will fade and not be recreated. When the plant really lacks light and wants to receive more, it will show this by hanging its leaves. In this case, move the Aglaonema Maria to a lighter spot.
Is the Aglaonema Maria poisonous?
Yes, unfortunately the Aglaonema is poisonous. The sap that comes from the stems can cause skin irritation. Keep the plant at a safe distance from children and animals.
