How to Care for an Indo Princess Aglaonema

Use these instructions to care for an Indo Princess Aglaonema indoor plant. This guide will tell you how to water your Aglaonema; its light, temperature, and humidity preferences; and any additional care it might need to help it grow.

 

light requirements

Indo Princess Aglaonema will do best in a well-lit location such as a window with eastern light exposure. Bright indirect sunlight is optimal. Never place your Indo Princess Aglaonema in full sun–the leaves will burn. If you have less than optimal lighting available, don’t worry! Aglaonemas will tolerate and even thrive, in low light areas. In most cases, artificial or fluorescent light found in windowless offices is enough for this tough plant.

WATER REQUIREMENTS

Water your Indo Princess Aglaonema thoroughly, but allow the soil to dry out between waterings. This plant prefers to be kept moist, but make sure the soil isn’t soggy—moderation is key! Do not allow the lower soil to remain wet, as this may cause root rot.
HUMIDITY PREFERENCE
Your Indo Princess Aglaonema can survive in an environment with low humidity, but will thrive with a higher humidity level. Mist the leaves regularly or use a pebble tray to raise the humidity.
OPTIMUM TEMPERATURE
Your Indo Princess Aglaonema prefers temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s. Avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.
PLANT FOOD
For best results, use a liquid houseplant fertilizer 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, and make sure the fertilizer is diluted to half the recommended strength.
ADDITIONAL CARE
If you find the tips of your plant’s leaves dry out and turn brown, it may be caused by your tap water, which can contain salts, chlorine, and fluoride. If you do not have a filtration system, leaving the tap water in an open container overnight before watering can help remove some of the chlorine and fluoride.
TOXICITY
Your Indo Princess is moderately toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting.
