Aglaonema commutatum, Chinese evergreen, Sente

Aglaonemas come from the tropical forests of south-east Asia. Aglaonemas belong to the aroids family, together with spathifyllum, dieffenbachia and philodentron. As its "relatives", it has shiny oval-shaped leaves, with jigged edges, fleshy to the touch and with impressive alternations of various tones of green. Its flowers look like small white callas and they produce a few yellow or red fruits. However, the basic reason for cultivating aglaonemas is their wonderful foliage and not its colors. Aglaonema is very resistant to disease .
Aglaonemas can be grown to any degree of lighting, from full-light (filtered - never direct sunlight) to the darkest room of hour home. Of course, the more the light it gets the most impressive the colors on its leaves will be. Propagation: Division or stem cuttings
