Farewell To My Aglaonema Red Cochin.

I once had a beautiful plant in my garden. It was given to me by a church friend. I took it home and place it under the edge of the side porch away from direct sunlight.
After some time, it began to grow beautifully and was doing very well. The leaves multiplied and the colour of the leaves grew to deep pink or red.
 Initially, the colour of the leaves were a dull pink. 
It even flowered and I was hoping to see new plants appear. But it was not to be. My happiness was short-lived. Sometime happened to this plant.
The leaves started to droop and the plant looked sick. It could be due to the excess rainwater from heavy rain during the wet season. I moved the pot away from the edge but it was too late. The plant didn't recover. So it was farewell to my lovely Aglaonema Red Cochin plant. I am not sure whether I will get another plant in the near future.

  7. I think the red ones are more difficult to grow. The same happened to mine but the common speckled green ones survive well. But of course looks-wise they are no comparison to the reds.:)

  10. I'm sorry about your plant that didn't survive. I've had many over the years that didn't survive. I was always sad when they died.

    I always enjoy your fences.
