Like most plants, the Chinese Evergreen prefers bright, indirect light. However, it will adjust to just about any lighting condition. Some varieties will even thrive in darker corners or windowless hallways.
Because it is used to growing under the dense rainforest canopy, it will not tolerate direct light. Keep your plant a few feet away from windows to prevent the leaves from sorching.
Aglaonema plants are very slow drinkers and they like to dry out between waterings. Allow the soil to dry out 2/3 of the way down before watering it again. For some sizes, this may mean watering monthly or less.
Use a half-strength all-purpose fertilizer two times a year on your Aglaonema. Do not fertilizer in the Fall and Winter.
