Indoor Plants - House Plants or Office Plants - Aglaonema

Chinese Evergreen-Aglaonema 'Jubilee Petite'

Good Indoor Plants for Beginners - Aglaonema

This is an Aglaonema 'Jubilee Petite'. The common name for Aglaonema is Chinese Evergreen. Aglaonema make great indoor plants for any office or even in the home.

When I first started in the indoor plant care business, about 30 years ago, there were only a few varieties of Aglaonema plants that we used on our commercial accounts.

The other day I went to the growers website and did a count of the varieties of Aglaonema that they were offering for sale. I believe the total was somewhere around 32! That leaves a little something for everybody when it comes to leaf size, color and other characteristics of plants.

Aglaonema are pretty plants, at least most of the varieties, and they are good for growing in an area of bright, indirect lighting without any sun. They don't take loads of attention but, of course, for any indoor plant to do well, you do need to do a regular check for water needs, groom your plant (remove any yellow leaves, gently clean leaves of any dust, etc.) and turn to keep your plant growing evenly on all sides.
