The benefits of displaying indoor plants in our homes are huge. Plants are a décor tool, moisturiser, therapist, climate improver and detoxifier in a pot. Everybody loves a fresh display of green and healthy plants but there are those among us who have a difficult time with pot plants.
If you want a soft swathe of patterned grey-green leaves in your home, the Aglaonema varieties are a good bet. It can cope with air conditioning, which makes it a popular choice for the office. The leaves grow in generous rosettes, which form clumps and can be divided and re-potted in spring.
Keep the soil damp in summer, and water occasionally in winter. Aglaonema varieties are medium light plants so they will not tolerate direct sun. They can endure a dark corner for a limited time.
