Aglaonema Pictum Tricolor, also known as Chinese Evergreen, is a popular houseplant that is easy to care for. Here are some care tips to keep your Pictum Tricolor plant healthy and thriving:
Aglaonema Pictum Tricolor prefers bright indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves. Placing her a few feet from a south facing window will provide enough sun to keep her happy.
The Pictum Tricolor sports multi-colored leaves with camouflage green patterned variegation
Water your Aglaonema Pictum Tricolor thoroughly once the top inch of soil feels dry. Make sure the pot has good drainage to prevent waterlogging, which will lead to root rot.
This plant prefers higher humidity, but can tolerate lower humidity levels like those of a typical household. You can increase the humidity around the plant by misting it with water, placing a humidifier nearby, or placing a tray of water with pebbles underneath the plant. Alternatively place the plant in a higher humidity room such as kitchen or bath.
Aglaonema Pictum Tricolor prefers temperatures between 60-85°F (16-29°C). Avoid exposing it to temperatures below 60°F (16°C) as it can damage the leaves.
Use well-draining aroid mix. We like a mixture of orchid bark, peat moss, and perlite.
Repot into a pot 1-2 inches larger when root bound, about once a year.
Feed your Pictum Tricolor every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced fertilizer diluted to half strength.
Propagate aglaonemas by taking a stem cutting between two nodes.
Prune your plant as needed to maintain its shape and size. Cut off any yellow or brown leaves or those with spots or other damage.
Aglaonema Pictum Tricolor can be propagated through stem cuttings. Take a stem cutting with a few leaves and place it in water or sphagnum moss, once secondary roots develop its ready to go into soil.
By following these tips, you can help your Aglaonema Pictum Tricolor plant thrive and stay healthy.
