- Appearance: The Aglaonema Firework is valued for its striking and colorful foliage. The leaves are typically elliptical in shape, with shades of green and silver. What sets this variety apart is its distinctive, bold red and pink markings resembling fireworks, which appear on the leaves, giving the plant its name.
- Size: Aglaonema Firework typically grows to a height of 1 to 2 feet (30 to 60 cm) indoors, but it can reach slightly larger sizes under optimal conditions.
- Fertilizer: To keep your Aglaonema Firework healthy and vibrant, you can apply a balanced, liquid fertilizer during the growing season, which is typically spring and summer. Dilute the fertilizer to half strength and apply it every 4-6 weeks. Avoid fertilizing during the winter when the plant is not actively growing.
- Watering: . Water when the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil feels dry. Overwatering should be avoided, as it can lead to root rot.
- Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix that is rich in organic matter. A standard indoor plant mix or a mix designed for tropical plants is suitable.
- Pot with drainage: Use a pot with drainage holes to prevent overwatering and ensure proper drainage.
- Saucer: Place a saucer under the pot to catch excess water and protect your surfaces.
- Humidity tray or humidifier: Aglaonema plants appreciate higher humidity levels. You can use a humidity tray filled with water or a room humidifier to maintain an adequate humidity level.
- Stake or support: As the plant grows, you may need to provide some support to keep it upright, especially if it becomes top-heavy
