The root system is superficial, fibrous. Stems erect or lodging, depending on age. Young plants have short stems that lengthen as they grow. Also, the size of the stems is affected by the duration of daylight hours. With a lack of light, the stems are stretched, flowering is delayed.
Reference! Young Aglaonems grow fast enough, which creates the need to transplant them once a year. Adults, on the contrary, are slow, and require a transplant only 1 time in 3-4 years.
When domesticating the plant, breeders were attracted by abundant, bulky, large foliage, which combines all shades of green, as well as silver, white and pink, depending on the species. The shape of the leaves is oval, heart-shaped or pointed. The size of the leaves varies between 10-30 cm. Large and fleshy leaves will not only decorate your windowsill all year round, but will also affect their antimicrobial properties and purify indoor air. Variegated leaves are diluted with peduncles with oblong buds or berries.
How and when aglaonema blooms
The conditions for flowering are the lack of direct sunlight, plentiful spraying, moderate watering. The buds are small cobs shrouded in a white veil. It rarely blooms, and only with proper care, about 2 weeks. Many pinch or cut off the buds, in order to avoid weakening the deciduous crown of the shrub. After, Aglaonema gives fruits of a red, orange or white hue. A scattering of bright peas looks favorably against a background of green and variegated foliage.
Important! Berries are poisonous! Therefore, it is necessary to protect children and pets from contact with this plant.
In vivo, buds appear in the summer months. The rest period falls on the winter. In order for the plant to bloom, as was shown in the photo, it is necessary to create good conditions for it: the absence of drafts, regular watering, a comfortable temperature without drops. To speed up the process, bone meal is added to top dressing. Many people do not attach importance to the buds of Aglaonema and remove flower stalks. The number of buds depends on the type of plant.
