What other plant parents say
I seriously cannot kill this plant! I stuck it under a north window 18 months ago and it has survived and thrived more than any of my other plants! I went through a Covid slump and didn’t water any o…
This plant grows so beautifully. Its long leaves grow up and out in such a satisfying way. The perfect plant for the indoor jungle aesthetic. And it bloomed last year! I repotted recently after it gr…
Apparently very sensitive to minerals in some tap water so it may not be as easy as they all say (coming from a plant vet. with 20+ other varieties)
Brought this plant all the way from Chicago it did very well on the drive doesn’t require a lot of water does very well in any light setting
Lowest maintenance, least problematic plant I have! It pops out huge new leaves constantly in the darkest spot in my apartment.
my chinese evergreen isn’t in the highest lighting situation but she does so good and looks flawless and happy!
Beautiful foliage with dark pink and blush pink and green edged leaves..very pretty plant and very easy care.
Both of mine have been a major pest magnet. The plant get sunburnt easily as well
Full of broad leaves, bushy almost which adds to how full it feels.
Very hardy and a fast grower. Tolerant of lower (not none) light.
How to care for Chinese Evergreen
Chinese Evergreen needs 0.5 cups of water every 7 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Chinese Evergreen can tolerate being far from a window and light source.
Place it less than 6 feet from a south-facing window to ensure it receives enough light to survive 💪.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Chinese Evergreen in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Chinese Evergreen after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
