Colourful, compact and cute - the Chinese Evergeen is ideal for plant newbies as it's an absolute breeze to take care of. Its Latin name, Aglaonema, comes from the Greek word ‘aglos’, meaning 'bright', and ‘nema’, meaning 'thread', due to the patterns that decorate its leaves.
Who needs a four-leafed clover, when you have the Aglaonema Crete? It's considered to be lucky in its native home, China.
This easy-going plant doesn't need an overwhelming amount of attention to grow well. However, if you fancy showing your Chinese Evergreen some love, give it an occasional dust and remove any dry leaves.

Jo's Top Tip
The more light this plant gets, the richer and more vibrant its colour becomes - just don't expose it to direct sunlight. Make the most of its bold colours - it is considered unusual in comparison to other Aglaonemas that are green and yellow.
Does not come with decorative pot.
