Aglaonema White Joy is a cultivar with elongated leaves, a glossy texture, and 'Full Moon' white variegation, only the outer part of the leaf and stem being green. This is aesthetically considered perfect for enhancing the look of a room, through its multiple foliage and growth pattern, which gives a natural vibe. Aglaonema White Joy also has the following characteristics: 


  • It is one of the easiest indoor plants to care for, due to its resistance to pests and minimal care needs, especially regarding light. It is also a good purifier, filtering toxins from the air such as benzene and formaldehyde. 
  • It prefers temperatures between 15 and 30°C. Make sure the temperature does not drop below 14°C, even in winter. Humidity ranging from 45% to 70% is optimal for healthy development, but humidity in a home with lower humidity, down to 45%, is also acceptable. Therefore, a place receiving plenty of natural light is an ideal spot to place the plant. Alternatively, you can supplement humidity anytime with the help of a humidifier. 
  • The best time to transplant it is in spring or summer. However, due to its fast growth rate, we recommend changing the substrate every 12-16 months. Being a prolific plant, you can apply your gardening skills and propagate it by separating the basal rhizomes to have a richer plant or to give new plants to friends. It prefers a consistently moist substrate, but too much water can lead to root rot, moderation is key. 


It has a very good growth rate under optimal conditions, namely full indirect sunlight (east-facing windows are the best options), humidity of 45% - 70%, and watering the substrate when the top two cm have dried out. 


Attention! To check the moisture level of the substrate, inserting a finger into the pot at a depth of 2 cm is the best method for measuring soil moisture. 


So, if you feel the substrate is moist, keep the spray bottle away from it for a day or two, and if it feels dry, water it. 


Attention 2! When we talk about watering, we must consider the pot in which the plant is planted, as well as the amount of substrate and its aeration level. That is, we don't pour a liter of water into a pot with a diameter and height of 12 cm, because we'll drown the plant's roots. It's best to discard excess water from the collector tray half an hour after watering. 


Good luck with caring for it! And don't forget to give us updates about your plant, using the hashtag #greenmirrors and tagging @green.mirrors in your Instagram posts! We promise to share them in stories ☺
