Foliage: Aglaonema plants are known for their beautifully patterned leaves. The leaves come in various shapes, sizes, and colors, ranging from shades of green to silver, red, pink, or cream. The patterns can include stripes, spots, or variegation, making each variety unique.

Humidity: While they can tolerate normal indoor humidity, they appreciate slightly higher humidity levels. Misting the leaves or using a humidifier can be beneficial, especially in drier environments. Maintenance: Pruning: Regularly remove yellowing or damaged leaves to maintain the plant's health and appearance. Repotting: Repot every couple of years to provide fresh soil and space for growth. Propagation: Propagation is typically done through stem cuttings in water or soil. Toxicity: Caution: Aglaonema plants contain compounds that can be toxic if ingested. Keep them away from pets and small children. Varieties: Different Cultivars: There's a wide range of Aglaonema cultivars, each with its own unique leaf patterns and colors. Some popular varieties include Aglaonema 'Silver Bay', 'Red Siam', 'Maria', and 'Emerald Beauty'.
