About Red Siam Aurora Aglaonema
Chinese evergreens have been growing in homes throughout Asia for centuries as symbols of good fortune. They were introduced to the Western world in 1885. Their ancestors were cultivated starting in the 1930s and became especially successful in Florida, where most foliage plants are now produced. 🤞

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 Red Siam Aurora Aglaonema after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Leaves are pretty as long as you can keep it happy. Mine requires very frequent water and a good amount of light. If it’s unhappy, the leaves start getting brown inky spots that turn the whole leaf brown quickly. Luckily, new leaves have been unfurling from the middle so it’s still lush.
So far this plant isn’t super happy with me, I’m not sure why. It’s barely growing.
It’s getting medium light so I don’t hini that’s the problem.
The soil it came in just never dries, I let weeks go between watering, it’s just always moist, and that makes me nervous about root rot and suffocation.
There is also very contradictory information online about its water requirements. Greg recommends to water super frequently, keeping it moist at all times, but many places recommend the opposite, to let it dry significantly between watering.
So, yeah, confusing.
This one has been through near death and came back strong. She’s a tough cookie. I let her get thirsty before watering and help keep her soil aerated by poking her soil gently with a chopstick every month or so. Her beautiful red leaves are gorgeous.
