How to Care for Aglaonema Mystic Marble Plants
Before purchasing your Aglaonema Mystic Marble plant, be sure to read the recommended care instructions to ensure your plant remains happy and healthy for years to come.
What is the best soil for Aglaonema Mystic Marble?
The best soil for Aglaonema Mystic Marble 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 do I fertilize Aglaonema Mystic Marble?
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 mixed with water to quickly provide nutrients to a plant that has been in a container for an extended time. On the other hand, Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor is an option as a granular, slow-release fertilizer while potting and planting. Any fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants with the transition to a new environment.
How do I water Aglaonema Mystic Marble?
Aglaonema Mystic Marble should receive water relatively infrequently, as the plants like to dry out some between watering. The easiest way to tell if a plant needs water is by the weight of the container. If the container is heavy and the foliage is upright, chances are good the plant doesn't need water, whereas a light pat and limp foliage mean the plant needs some water. Sometimes, water pours out of the container without being retained by the soil. Soaking dry potting soil in a small dish or saucer can be an efficient way to solve the problem. 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.
What is the light requirement for Aglaonema Mystic Marble?
We suggest planting your newly purchased Aglaonema Mystic Marble into a container 2"-4" wider 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 too deep. 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 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.
