Aglaonema Emerald Beauty
Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema), is one of the best plants for beginners (or folks too busy to keep most houseplants alive). This sturdy plant is wonderfully easy to grow; it tolerates just about every indoor condition. While it's one of the toughest plants, it's also beautiful. Most varieties have rich green leaves attractively patterned with silver. It also has cute, calla-lily-like blooms in spots where it gets enough light. You can grow Chinese evergreen just about anywhere in your home --- it tolerates low light well, but also grows well in bright spots. It doesn't even need natural light to thrive --- Chinese evergreen does just fine in offices with fluorescent lighting. The plant is equally low-care when it comes to water; you can water regularly, keeping the soil evenly moist, or water once every few weeks and Chinese evergreen will do equally well. It doesn't require fertilizer, but will grow best if fertilized once or twice a year in spring or summer (or every six months) with a general-purpose houseplant fertilizer.
