Plant Care – Aglaonema cutlass
Light: Place your Aglaonema cutlass under bright and indirect sunlight, and do avoid direct sunlight because it will cause its leaves to scorch and dry up. Aglaonema can tolerate low light conditions. However, it is not an ideal environment for them to grow in.
Water: Water your Aglaonema thoroughly and ensure that the soil is evenly moist. Water your plant whenever the top inch of the soil is dry to the touch, and make sure to water till some water flows through the pot’s drainage holes. And make sure to pour out any access water in its saucer.
Soil: Aglaonema thrives in well-aerated soil that drains water quickly and, therefore, should not be placed in soils that are too compacted and heavy, which cause prolonged periods of water retention. And this can lead to root problems, for instance, root rot.
Fertiliser: Fertilise your plant with a general slow-release fertiliser. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions when fertilising your plant.
Humidity Requirement: Medium
