The aglaonema has unique leaves. They have grey-white markings on their green leaves, which can be 30 centimeters long. When the plant matures, small flowers can grow on it. You won't probably see this, because the flowers grow under the leaves. The Chinese evergreen is an easy plant to maintain. When the soil feels dry, water the plant. In the wild, the Chinese evergreen lives under other plants, so this plant can perfectly stand in the shade.
