Aglaonema Pictum Tricolour
The plant seen in the photo is the plant you will get when purchasing from this listing
Aglaonema Pictum Tricolor is known for its unusual leaf patterns which resembles camouflage. The pattern on the leaves is random and comes in dark to light green with silver markings.
As well as its unusual foliage, the growth habit can be a bit unusual too, it can often be on the wonky side, but hey, we like the weirdos here at Perky Plants!
It isn't the easiest of plants to care for and can be quite a slow grower. Patience is certainly needed for this one!
As is often the case with the plants we sell, this guy loves high humidity, bright light and warmth. If it gets left in the cold or in a draught you'll know its not happy pretty quickly, same with the humidity.
This plant loves a chunky airy soil.
It loves high humidity, between 60%-90% is ideal!
Aglaonema's dont like to dry out completely between waterings, but also do not like to have their roots sat in soggy water, finding the balance in the water schedule for the environment this plant is in is very important.
The soil our plants arrive to you in has been specifically created for them!
We mix all of our soil and therefore you do not need to worry about repotting for a good while.
We certainly do not recommend repotting straight away, your new plant needs time to arrive and settle into your home, its new environment. Repotting straight away can cause a great deal of stress to the plant, please wait at least two weeks after arrival before repotting your plant.
All of our plants arrive in eco friendly plant pots.
We currenlty use two different types of pots, your plant will arrival in either a coco coir pot or a rice husk pot.
Both pots are biodegradable and can be reused. Once the pot has reached the end of its life they can be put into your compost bin!
How long have we had this plant?
Here at Perky Plants, we want to be open and honest about how long our plants are with us before they move on.
We keep all of our plants for atleast 4 weeks after they arrive with us.
This gives the plant time to settle into life in the UK, to settle into its new pot and substrate, to acclimate to a similar environment it will be in once it arrives with you.
Some plants hang out here with us for longer than 4 weeks, if a plant isnt ready to move on we're not going list it on our site!
This Aglaonema Pictum Tricolour has been with us since November 2020, a lot longer than 4 weeks! But we believe it is ready to go off and start settling into its new home with you!
