How do I fertilize Aglaonema Etta Rose?
Indoor houseplant fertilizers fall into two groups: water soluble, liquid quick release, and granular, slow release fertilizers. Jack's Classic Indoor plant food works well as a powder, quick release fertilizer that is mixed with water to quickly provide nutrients to a plant that has been in a container for an extended time. Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor is an option as a granular, slow release fertilizer that can be applied while potting and planting. Any type of fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants with the transition to a new environment.
What is the light requirement for Aglaonema Etta Rose?
Aglaonema Etta Rose does well in just about any light condition. Aglaonemas often have the best color in medium or indirect light indoors. Aglaonema does excellent in offices, living rooms, and even kitchens and bathrooms due to their ability to thrive in low light. Aglaonema can take some direct sun on the leaves, but it's advised to diffuse the bright sunlight with a sheer curtain. Aglaonema Etta Rose does well under fluorescent light, such as in offices. The color will shine through under these conditions.
What soil is best for Aglaonema Emerald Bay?
The best soil for Aglaonema Etta Rose is a well balanced mix of peat moss, perlite and vermiculite that dries some between watering but takes a long time to compact. Typically, any reputable potting mix will work well and includes those ingredients. Adding a granular, slow release fertilizer while planting is a good way to help the plant thrive in the transplanting transition.
How often do I water Aglaonema Etta Rose?
Aglaonema Etta Rose should be watered relatively infrequently, as the plants like to dry out some between watering. The easiest way to tell if a plant needs to be watered is by the weight of the container. If the container is very heavy and the foliage is upright, chances are good the plant doesn't need water, whereas a light container and limp foliage means the plant needs some water. Sometimes, water pours out of the container without being retained by the soil. Soaking the dry soil in a small dish or saucer can be a useful way to solve this problem. It is important not to water the foliage of these plants, or to over-water them as this will lead to leaf damage or plant death. If you're unsure, it is always better to let the plant go dry instead of drenching it with water. Moisture meters are another easy way to tell if plants need to be watered, and usually come with a guide to indicate what number or level of moisture different plants require.
