If you're looking for an elegant pop of colour in your plant collection, then this Chinese Evergreen is just what you are looking for. With beautifully standout mottled green leaves elegantly flushed with red.
Generally known as the ‘Chinese Evergreen’ these indoor plants are often touted as easy-care, and this couldn't be truer for the Aglaonema 'King of Siam' with its fuss-free nature and ability to withstand some drought. So if you the kind of person who forgets to water now and again, this is the plant for you.
Place these stylish indoor plants in a spot where they will receive bright diffused light as sunlight will scorch their tender leaves, leaving your plant unattractive. The Chinese Evergreen can adapt effectively to lower light levels generally found in many living spaces, however, to keep your King of Siam looking bright and bold it is best to keep it in brighter lighting conditions.
Aglaonema is known to be on top of the list for effective air purifiers and will remove many household toxins from the air, leaving your home feeling ultra-fresh. Chinese Evergreens are also collected in Thailand as good luck charms, so not only will it leave you with clean air, but may bring you prosperity and well being too.
Pair your Chinese Evergreen King of Siam houseplant with an austere or even bold tabletop planter to allow your foliage to be the focal point and use it as a centrepiece or shelf accent.
Please note: Aglaonema are toxic to pets and humans. Please do not attempt to eat your houseplant.
