All about Aglaonema

The genus of evergreen perennials known as Aglaonema is commonly called Chinese periwinkle or Philippine periwinkle. These plants are native to the tropical and subtropical regions of New Guinea and Asia. They have been cultivated for centuries as good luck and good luck plants.

Some Chinese conifers are erect, others are propagated by creeping rhizomes that easily take root on the soil below. All species are flowering plants that produce flowers in spring and summer. In domestic environments, some can bloom in winter. They bloom in stages, producing first a bud, then an anthesis (similar to a peace lily flower). For pollination, the outer spathe is removed to access the female flowers.

Aglaonema is a genus of plants in which NASA has absorbed formaldehyde and benzene from the ambient air. Although they are good for improving air quality, they contain calcium oxalate crystals that are toxic when ingested. The sap that escapes from the plant can also cause skin irritation. Therefore, growers must wear a shelter when handling these plants.

All varieties of Aglaonema (about 21 to 14 species) are extremely easy to care for and make them office favorites all over the world. Although Aglaonema ‘Silver Queen’ is one of the most popular varieties, you can experiment with varieties like ‘Suzy’ or ‘Silver Bay’– you don’t need to stick to ‘Silver Queen’. Silver Bay, Silver Queen and Suzy are easy to find in big box stores.
