Do Chinese evergreens like to be on the dryer side? Humidity? Spritz with water? Mines not bad at all but it really hasn’t done much since I got it almost a year ago. οΏΌ

@KeepGrowing Chinese Evergreen plants can be gently misted with water which helps to hydrate the leaves and improve humidity levels when the air is particularly dry.
Mine don't care. Where we are in the south, we have a decent amount of humidity if we aren't running the heater in the winter.

Be careful with your plant sitting right next to the window. These plants prefer shade and they can yellow and dry quickly if they get direct sun.

I see a new leaf in the middle! Maybe if it's been close to the window for a while, the sun is inhibiting its growth. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ
This is a nice plant πŸ˜€
@GenesisLoad nice one Sam I agree
Drier yes and less direct light. I have had one for years that gets mad if I give it any more light than the table lamp near by. I could acclimate a little but it grows and thrives so leave it be.
Mine likes to be misted daily but she doesn’t like to be too dry and definitely likes mild indirect light from afar (like 3m away) with more shade.
I water mine every 2.5-3 weeks, indirect sunlight, and I mist the leaves every 2-3 days. I don’t water until the underside of the leaves start to get β€œashy” that’s how I can tell when she needs to be watered.
