The Dirt

Native to regions of Asia and New Guinea. These plants were introduced to the West in 1885. Aglaonema derives from the Greek word aglaos which means shining and nema meaning thread. They are slow growing and can start off small but can grow larger and wider over time. These can be easily propagated with cuttings and by dividing the shoots. Aglaonema’s are good plants to purify the air and remove toxins like formaldehyde and benzene, but are poisonous if ingested.
