Aglaonema commutatum 'Wishes' - Chinese evergreen DESCRIPTION: Deep green broad glossy leaves strongly marked with warm vibrant red-pink. Aglaonemas originate in shady tropical Asian forests. USES: Ideal container plant for a shaded patio or indoors in a well lit room. Suited to underplanting in tropical style gardens too! PLANTING: Plant in a shady spot with indirect sunlight and regular irrigation. Prefers free draining soil or a good quality potting mix. CARE: Water regularly during the first 12 weeks and only if soil seems dry once established. Apply a slow release fertiliser yearly and liquid feed every three months for loads of vibrant foliage. Remove old leaves for a quick tidy up - wash hands afterwards as sap can be irritating to skin. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 60cm H x 60cm W. YOUR PLANTS: These plants are tube-stock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide. Your plants may be supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on. You can see an example in the image gallery.
