Aglaonema Emerald Beauty Plant Care
Indoor Plants & Flowers


Aglaonema, Emerald Beauty Indoor Plant

Aglaonema Emerald Beauty

Aglaonema Emerald Beauty is an attractive, easy to care for plant and is on just about every ones list of best house plants. Aglaonema Emerald Beauty can be maintained at the lower light levels often found in the home or office. There are many varieties of Aglaonema plant and the care for them is very similar. Some of these varieties are easier to keep as indoor plants.

Some of the more common Aglaonema varieties are the Aglaonema Emerald Beauty, Silver Queen and the Aglaonema Silver Bay. Aglaonemas have a bush-like or clumping growth and, depending on the pot size, can be from 8 inches to 4 feet in height. The Aglaonema "Emerald Beauty", also called "Maria", is often used in interior landscapes.

Indoor plant care questions or problems? You can send a house plant care question but before you do, please finish this page, and read this information on watering your indoor plants, how to help keep your house plant's root system healthy and lighting for your indoor house plants. These are most important for your house plant's health and this is some of the information I will refer you to when you send an email.

Most of the Aglaonema plants are variegated to some extent. Keep in mind that the variegated types need more light than those with less variegation. Typically, the lighter the color of a plant, the higher the light levels it needs to maintain its color and variegation.

How To Water

If you place your Aglaonema Emerald Beauty in high light, you can allow the potting mix to dry down 1/2 to 3/4 of the way out before watering thoroughly. In a lower light situation, allow soil to dry almost completely between waterings. Please read the section on watering for more on the most important part of your plant care.

Indoor Plant Care Tips
Aglaonema Emerald Beauty

Temperatures for Aglaonema Emerald Beauty should not be allowed to drop much below 60°F. Aglaonema are not cold tolerant plants. Average household temperatures should be fine for this indoor plant.

Lighting - Aglaonema Emerald Beauty is a great house plant for just about any location except full sun. Full sun, especially through glass, will scorch the exposed leaves. Aglaonema Emerald Beauty plants will survive in low light but will become thin and leggy. All indoor plants will become leggy and weak if kept in low light for extended periods of time. For a nice looking plant, try to provide bright, diffused natural light or some artificial fluorescent light. This plant will do quite well with just artificial lighting. For this reason Aglaonema Emerald Beauty is ideal for use in professional office spaces and building common areas.

To help keep your Aglaonema Emerald Beauty full and bushy, remove some of the new leaves as they appear. Do this by firmly grasping the stem the new leaf grows from and hold the new leaf near its base and gently pull. It should come out entirely and this is preferred. Do not use scissors.

Leaves and stems should be removed completely with no "stump" left behind. Wounds on a plant allow for entry of disease and can attract insects. Remove flowers or bracts in the same way.

You should not have too many problems with your Aglaonema Emerald Beauty, especially if you learn to water properly. Indoor plants, including Aglaonema Emerald Beauty, are prone to stem and root rot if the soil is kept overly wet.

Mealy bugs are one of the most common insect problems that you may have with Aglaonema. An oval shaped, somewhat flattened body and six legs distinguish this insect, although they can appear to have more legs because of their "antennae" and "tails". They also have a fringe around the body. A waxy, protective substance covers the body of adults and egg sacs giving them a cottony appearance.

Mealy bugs excrete a sticky substance called honeydew. You may see or feel it on the leaves. They normally are found in hidden areas, the undersides of the leaves or in leaf axils. Keep an eye out for these pest, especially when you first bring a new plant home.

Treat new additions to your plant family for a week or two with a spray mixture of mild liquid dish soap and water. I often add a few drops of Eucalyptus essential oil to my indoor plant cleaning mixture as it is often used as a natural insect repellent. Treat until run off, or use a sponge dampened with the mixture to gently clean all parts of your Aglaonema plant. You must be sure to hit the undersides of the leaves and the stems also. Cleaning should be a regular part of your indoor plant care.

Never apply anything to the foliage of your plant while it is in the sun or when the soil is dry. Water your indoor plants first and move to a shady location if needed.
