Aglaonema – Red
One of the easiest of all houseplants to grow, red aglaonema is also one of the most stylish. A relatively new variety to the houseplant world, this stunner shows off dark green leaves elegantly flushed with bright red or pink. Its colorful foliage makes red aglaonema a perfect home-decor accent. It’s gorgeous on desks or tabletops, as well as coffee tables and side tables in dens, living rooms, and bedrooms.
The striking red or pink tones in the foliage also make red aglaonema a fun, stylish alternative plant for the holiday. Consider using it alongside or instead of a poinsettia. Happily, this long-lived houseplant keeps its color and will look good for years!
Make the most of red aglaonema by growing it in a colorful container that either accents or contrasts is bright, bold leaves. And note: Grow red aglaonema in just about any room of your home — or get one for your office. (University research shows having a plant at work can help improve your memory and make you more efficient.)
Grow red aglaonema in low, medium, or bright light. The plant often shows the best color in medium or indirect light indoors. In most areas, it can take some direct sun on the leaves, but in the Deep South, it’s best to diffuse strong sun with a sheer curtain.
Water red aglaonema when the soil dries out. This houseplant can go a few weeks without water if you’re away from home or get too busy to water. But it does grow best when watered regularly.
Fertilize red aglaonema a couple of times a year to keep it at its best. You can fertilize more frequently if you wish. Use any houseplant fertilizer and be sure to follow the instructions on the product packaging.
Red aglaonema typically doesn’t not require any pruning.
