Aglaonema Heng Heng is a beautiful red and green volcanic plant that will thrive if given the correct care. Here are some tips to help you keep your plant healthy:
The Heng Heng prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves, while too little light can cause the plant to become leggy and lose its vibrant color.
Water your Aglaonema Heng Heng when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Be careful not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot. Allow the water to drain out of the pot completely and never let the plant sit in standing water.
Aglaonemas prefer high humidity. You can increase the humidity by placing a humidifier nearby or by placing a tray of water near the plant. Misting the leaves can also help.
Fertilize your Aglaonema Heng Heng once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced fertilizer. Do not fertilize during the dormant season (fall and winter).
Prune your Heng Heng to maintain its shape and remove any yellow or damaged leaves. Use clean, sharp scissors and make the cut just above a leaf node.
Pests and Diseases
The Heng Heng is generally resistant to pests and diseases, but it can occasionally be affected by mealybugs or spider mites. Treat any infestations promptly with an insecticidal soap or neem oil.
By following these simple tips, you can enjoy the beauty of your Aglaonema Heng Heng for years to come!
