The Aglaonema (also called Chinese Evergreen) is a highly decorative plant with several interesting varieties. It is one of the most popular houseplants and the color variations from dark green to silver, and some with hints of red. They are native to the humid, shady forests of Asia and New Guinea. Aglaonemas are slow growing, attractive, and make excellent foliage plants. They have large, narrow, and glossy oval leaves on short stems. Best of all, they don't like full sun, so they're perfect for indoors, especially if window light is a commodity in your home. Height depends on variety.
Think PINK! Unlike sporting mostly green leaves like other aglaonemas, the Etta Rose is covered in creamy pastel pink speckles. This variety requires more light in order to retain its colored hues. Additionally, they have thinner leaves than their darker counterparts.
