Chinese Evergreen

Large, lanceolate leaf
Watering once a week
Indirect light
Leaf spray in the absence of moisture

The evergreen houseplant, with short stems and lanceolate leaves, is about 10-25 cm long and 10-15 cm wide. Leaf spots are different and often follow a certain order. Resistant to shade and drought. When the plant flowers, it appears white.

It is wrong to name Chinese Evergreen flowers as the main plant; Because flower has a different meaning and the name of the plant is appropriate. Most houseplants are evergreens.

When you look at the Chinese Evergreen, you can see that it has a Mediterranean appearance. Chinese Evergreen is resistant to shade and dehydration and has a relatively short height.

The Chinese Evergreen leaves have short stems that protrude from the soil surface. The leaves are about 20 cm long and 10 cm wide, lanceolate and bent downwards. In some species, red streaks are also seen inside the leaves.

Light and temperature required for Chinese Evergreen

In ideal conditions, indirect and moderate light ensures proper growth and health of the agglomerate. But you should know that direct sun is not the favorite of agglomerates. The north window is the optimal choice for agglomerates. Due to its native region, the tropics, the agglomerate can not tolerate low winter temperatures and the minimum tolerable temperature is 10-15 degrees Celsius. Do not store the agglomerate in a dark place near a radiator or heating device.

Irrigation for Chinese Evergreen
To irrigate the agglomerate, the soil surface must be dried between irrigations. In the cold season, ie autumn and winter, the amount of irrigation is less and the growth of agglomerate is slower. Due to its origin, agglomerates need moist air, so it is best to spray the leaves every day.

Suitable soil for Chinese Evergreen plant
Suitable soil for agglomerates is a mixture of potting soil: leaf soil, sand, peat and garden soil. Soil rich in organic matter such as leaf litter is good news for this plant.
Feeding and fertilizing Chinese Evergreen
In the growing season, ie spring and summer, when the agglomerate grows more, you can use dilute liquid fertilizer to feed the plant once every two weeks. The required fertilizer of 2 grams per liter is sufficient.
