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.
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.
