Aglaonema 'Etta Rose'

8 inch Azalea

One of our favorites, this delicate yet elegant aglaonema will begin changing it's white area to pink when placed in a low light environment. Our Etta Rose come in an 8 inch azalea pot and are between 16 and 18 inches tall when ready.

The meters below indicate a range of light and tolerance to drought. The ranges are indicated by the little light bulbs and the small water drops.

Light Instructions

Aglaonemas are a good choice for places that receive less than great light. These plants will burn if exposed to too much light. Avoid patio areas that receive direct sun during the day.

Water Instructions

Water maintenance for an Aglaonema is very easy. Prevent long dry periods between waterings and these plants will be happy. Watch for drooping foliage to indicate that water is required.

+From the grower

  • Mealybugs should be the most significant problem on Aglaonema indoors.
  • Calcium and Magnesium, added in the form of dolomite, will help plants look their best for long term use.
  • In the nursery, caterpillars, thrips and disease are common issues, but these should not be a problem indoors.

Mealybugs can be removed with a systemic insecticide drench (safari), and hand cleaning.  If pesticides are not an option, try horticultural oil directly sprayed onto the insects.  A second and third treatment, if using oils,  will be necessary.  Space out the sprays at 3 week intervals to break up the mealybug life cycle.  

When aglaonemas are big and are not receiving enough fertilizer, Magnesium deficiency may occur.  Watch for yellow leaf margins to appear on the oldest foliage to indicate magnesium deficiency.  The easiest way to prevent this is with infrequent applications of dolomite along with a regular balanced fertilizer program.  Dolomite supplies calcium and magnesium.  Dolomite will also stabilize the pH of the soil allowing for optimal use of fertilizer.
