Light Requirement of Silver Bay Chinese Evergreen:
We suggest planting your newly purchased Silver Bay Chinese Evergreen into a container 2″-4″ wider in diameter, and 3″-5″ deeper than the container it is in currently. Use a well draining potting mix, and be sure to disturb the roots when transplanting. We recommend adding a slow release fertilizer to the new potting mix. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the container. Keep in mind that this new potting mix will retain more moisture than the previous container, so watering in the beginning should be less frequent.
