    The traditional green and silver cultivars of this plant are one of the easiest to maintain in my workplace, under long days of artificial light, dry air, and temps that can swing due to an old HVAC system. I do fight mealybugs on them at times, but that is the only pest I have found. They never wilt, so they look pretty happy even if they get a little dry. Seems to be a slow grower, especially when you're watching new shoots emerge or rooting cuttings.

    Native to Southeast Asia, the Aglaonema is a perennial plant often grown in offices and shopping malls and has become a popular house plant because of its easy care. This plant does well in low light situations as well as bright shade, but direct sun will scorch the leaves. The spathe (bloom) is whitish to green in color and not really showy. The sap from Aglaonema can cause skin irritation in some people.
