Care Tips

Light

  • Bright light and for the variegated types some direct sunlight (couple of hours) can help them grow well
  • If the leaves are dark green in color it’s best not to provide direct sun as it will harm them, but the variegated types may lose variegation if enough light is not provided
  • South, east or west facing windows are best suited, but again dependent on the leaf color

 

Water

  • Allow the top soil to dry out completely and then water thoroughly
  • Do not overwater this plant 
  • During winter water sparingly as the thick leaves will store water, so don’t get too concerned about the soil being dry

 

Soil

  • A peat based soil is best used that drains well
  • 2 parts peat and 1 part perlite or sand is a good mix
  • Other mixes will work well, but the main point is for the medium to drain well and be well aerated

 

Fertilizer

  • During spring – while the plant is growing use a diluted liquid fertilizer once every 2 weeks, and once a month during summer
  • No feeding is required from autumn to spring

 

Temperature & Humidity

  • Ideal temperature of 18°C to 24°C and no lower than 10°C
  • This species does like a humid environment
  • During the warmer months you can mist the leaves and/or place the plant on a pebble tray with water at the bottom
  • Most homes should be fine with its natural humidity if the air is not dry

 

Pests and Disease

  • It is generally pests and diseases free
  • However, when grown in poor conditions it might be attacked by some common pests like mealy bugs, aphids, spider mites and sometimes white-flies
  • For treating pests use organic pesticide or insecticidal soap

 

Repotting and Propagation 

  • Aglaonemas are slow growing and will only need repotting every other year
  • They are also generally low-growing plants, so their trunks will be revealed very gradually
  • Aglaonemas are not typically propagated by home growers
  • You can, however, divide the plants during repotting
  • Small shoots can also be potted as individual plants

 

Pruning

  • If stems and leaves begin overgrowing you can pinch out the top of certain stems to stop growth, otherwise they begin to grow spindly and out of shape in appearance
  • To get them looking their best, try and grow and prune them to display a bushy appearance

 

Propagation 

  • An easy method to propagate is to take a few centimeters of stem tip cuttings
  • Remove a tip (petiole) with about 5 – 8 cm of tip with one or two leaves on it
  • Plant the cutting in a very small pot with fresh potting mix that’s moist and try to provide warm temperatures of about 20ºC
  • The baby rubber plant can also propagate with leaf cuttings, although variegated types may lose the variegation

 

Pests

  • Keep an eye out for aphids, scale, mealybugs & spider mites
  • Identify and treat it early on 

 

Pet Safety

  • Pests do not seem to be a major issue for Peperomias, but fungal diseases can be troublesome that may be caused when the plant is overwatered
