AGLAONEMA brevispathum hospitum

Brevispathum is a rare aglaonema with origins in Thailand. It makes a very durable houseplant. It has long, glossy, dark green spear-shaped leaves with white to cream-colored spots.

This is a very slow-growing plant which means it can stay in the same pot for years. It never needs pruning. While on the spendy side, this plant will outlive several less durable plants.

LIGHT: It prefers low to medium light and should be protected from direct sunlight.

WATER: Water sparingly once a week or when soil begins to feel dry to the touch. Do not allow the plants to stand in water.

TEMPERATURES: Average household temperatures are fine. Remember to water less in cooler seasons.

This plant is most often available in 6" pots.
