How to Care for a Spring Snow Aglaonema

use these instructions to care for a Spring Snow Aglaonema. this guide will tell you how to water your Spring Snow Aglaonema, its light, temperature, and humidity preferences; and any additional care your plant might need to help it grow.

LIGHT REQUIREMENTS

Your Spring Snow Aglaonema will do best in bright, indirect light. However, if you have less than optimal lighting available, don’t worry! Your Spring Snow Aglaonema will tolerate and even thrive in low light areas. In most cases, artificial light found in windowless offices proves enough light for this tough plant.  

WATER REQUIREMENTS

Your plant prefers to be kept moist, but make sure the soil isn’t soggy—moderation is key! Do not allow the lower soil (bottom of the pot where roots reside) to remain wet as this may cause root rot.   

HUMIDITY PREFERENCE

Your Spring Snow Aglaonema can survive in a low humidity environment but will thrive with higher humidity levels. Mist the leaves regularly, place a humidifier nearby, or use a pebble tray to raise the humidity.  

OPTIMUM TEMPERATURE

Your Spring Snow Aglaonema prefers temperatures between 65-75 degrees. Avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.  

PLANT FOOD

For best results, use a liquid houseplant fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength once a month during the spring and summer. Never apply fertilizer to dry soil, always make sure the soil is damp before feeding your plant.  

ADDITIONAL CARE

If you notice the tips or edges of your plant’s leaves are turning brown, often with a yellowish hue at the edge, it could be due to your tap water. Allow your tap water to sit out overnight before watering so the chlorine and fluoride can evaporate. Alternatively, you can water with filtered water or rainwater. Remove any yellow leaves to keep your plant strong and growing.   

TOXICITY

Your Spring Snow Aglaonema is moderately toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting.
