Aglaonema Silver Bay
What a gem, the Aglaonema Silver Bay. And a strong air purifier as well!
The Aglaonema Silver Bay is characterised by its large leaves with beautiful leaf markings.
These leaf markings are green and silvery, therefore its special nickname 'Silver Bay'.
The beautiful Aglaonema Silver Bay owes its name to the silver tinted leaf markings and the large leaves. Originally the Aglaonema Silver Bay comes from tropical areas such as South-East Asia and Indonesia. Here the plant grows in the shade of high trees. For this reason the Aglaonema Silver Bay likes a place in the shadow.
Care & tips Aglaonema Silver Bay
The Aglaonema Silver Bay is not difficult to care of. Make sure the plant is placed in a spot with normal daylight that is also shaded from time to time. Because of its origin in the tropics and its way of life here, the plant does not tolerate too much direct sunlight.
If there is too much direct sunlight, the stems will grow hard with few leaves or the leaves may burn. Water the Aglaonema Silver Bay in small doses more often than in large doses all at once. This prevents the roots from flooding.
Water requirements Aglaonema Silver Bay
Try to keep the soil of the Aglaonema Silver Bay slightly moist in summer, but beware of too much water. Too much water can cause root rot and the plant may die. We recommend feeling the soil with two fingers to know whether it is time to water. 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. In the winter the soil may dry out a little before you water the plant again.
Light requirements Aglaonema Silver Bay
The Aglaonema Silver Bay likes to be placed in a light spot in normal daylight without direct sunlight. The plant occasionally likes to stand in the shade, so take this into consideration when deciding on its location. Because of its origin in the tropics and its way of life here, the plant does not tolerate too much direct sunlight. If there is too much sunlight, the stems will grow hard with few leaves or the leaves may burn. When the plant has a shortage of sunlight, it will show this by hanging its leaves. In this case, move the Aglaonema Silver Bay to a lighter spot.
Is the Aglaonema Silver Bay poisonous?
Yes, unfortunately the Aglaonema is poisonous. The juice that comes from the stems can cause skin irritation. Keep the plant at a safe distance from children and animals.
