I have been wanting an Aglaonema...
Meet Mulan!! πŸ‰ @Gustavo , I know you have some of these! Yours are what inspired me to get this beautiful gal. Any specific care instructions I should know? 😁

Ohhhhh she’s a beauty!
@JesssJungle Mulan is absolutely colorfully beautiful.
Wow so pretty! You have so many beautiful plants πŸ’šπŸŒΏπŸͺ΄
@JesssJungle My favourites!

Good news: they are some of the easiest to care. Indirect light always (although it can develop in low light too, slower) - just avoid putting it directly under sunlight; moist soil as a rule, but they are very forgiving friends if you forget to water them! They are very resilient, too. A humidifier/something to raise humidity is useful, but you don't have to worry too much about it, as long as you know they enjoy some humidity.

Expect some leaves to get all droopy and fall down at times, it has happened many, many times to me and the plant kept developing as healthy as a beast. Be mindful to not overwater, though.

And they are susceptible to fungus gnats, so something to cover the soil (I use rice husk - still not sure how you guys refer to this in english, I'm sorry!) is extremely useful and I make a point to do it first thing, when it gets to my house.

So far I only had problems with two of mine, both related to gnats. The only one that suffered most was my 'Frozen', but I believe she was sold to me by a... let's say a not so good store lol.

Hope you enjoy your new friend! They come in all shapes and sizes, you are walking down a daaaangerous path LOL
By the way, since I tend to get my Aglaonemas small to watch them grow, I only have two that compare to yours in size - yours is gorgeous! Here's a pic of my Red Siam, for comparison. She'll get there someday!
@Gustavo thank you for the wonderful tips! I will remember that about the fungus gnats.. I *knock on wood* haven't had much trouble with them yet because I live in a temperate climate, but I'll be ever vigilant.
She was just soooo pretty and healthy looking so I had to take her home!! πŸ₯°
Your little gal is delicate & pretty and I love her.
@JesssJungle thanks! And as always, you’re welcome and feel free to ask for any tips if I can help! Love these! πŸ’šπŸŒΏ
