ANOTHER THAI AGLAONEMA BEAUTY.

Today, I have another Thai Aglaonema plant to share here.  I first saw this plant in my sister's garden and was blessed with a small pot of this Thai Aglaonema beauty.
This is one from the many varieties of Aglaonema plants available.
I do not know its actual name. 
From one small pot, I now have 2 big pots of this Thai Aglaonema in my garden and they have grown into 2 bushy plants. 
This pot is exposed to a few hours of morning sun.
The leaves are in lighter green and the midrib is lighter pink or red.
 This pot has lesser sun that the above pot. It was under shade and not in direct sunlight. The leaves are in darker green and the midrib more pink or purplish. 
 Thai Aglaonema is suitable for both outdoor and indoor but need to have sufficient light. Too much water causes the leaves to brown starting from the tip of the leaves.
 Aglaonema's flower or bract.
The flower is beige in colour, not prominent and hardly noticeable. 
 Aglaonema is prone to pest especially the white, powdery mealy bugs. If left unchecked, it will spread quickly. The pest is usually found at the underside of leaves. I usually cut off the leaves or parts affected or I will spray with pesticides. Sometimes if the plants are badly affected, I will bald the plants and allow it to grow new shoots from the stumps. It may take some time to grow new shoots. 
 Even though the flower or bract may not be prominent or striking,
it has its own natural beauty.

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment,

such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry

or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self,

the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit,

which is of great worth in God's sight.

(1 Peter 3:3-4, NIV)

  2. Very beautiful multi colours leaves. I prefer to plant leaves than flowers. Most flowers are fragile & will drop easily. I have a pot that looks like yours & another pot of red leaves.

    1. Thank you, Irene. These leaves are slightly more stiffer from the plant with the thinner leaves which I have posted earlier. These are easier to maintain than most flowering plants. Have a blessed Sunday!

  7. How lovely these are, Nancy---I've just learned of a new plant in your faraway world. They're especially beautiful to me, for they remind me a bit of caladiums, with their green variegations and their ruby veins. My Mother had a great garden of them in Mississippi---all around every tree, in tall lengths of brick planters, in beds about the lawn, and people would drive by and stop just to take pictures (WAY back before we had such a craze for photographing strangers' gardens and blogging about them). We even scheduled our wedding for July, when they were at their lovely prime, for our outdoor ceremony and reception.

    I'm so glad to see you pop in so often---you're a brand new neighbor, dropping in to see my new kitchen and family doings, with the familiar ease of a long-time friend, and I'm so happy to see you.

    We're expecting five of our Lovies to arrive at suppertime for the week, so I'd best get to my little readyings, and cooking. Have a wonderful week!

    PS I especially like looking at your header photo, for it's so much like the wonderful colours of crape myrtle in the South.

  16. What a beautiful plant. I have something similar, but it doesn't have the attractive pink line in the middle like yours. Thanks for sharing, Nancy. You've just made it easier for me to find the name of my plant. :)
