'Cutlass' Chinese Evergreen

Aglaonema cutlass

Named after its long, blade-shaped leaves, the ‘Cutlass’ Chinese evergreen is notable for its pale silver colour and dark green markings.

As you can imagine, tropical plants like humidity and warmth. Water your Chinese evergreen regularly in summer months and give it a generous misting if it’s looking dried out. You can reduce watering in winter - just water when the top 1-2 inches of soil feel dry.
Keep your Chinese evergreen in warmer temperatures (somewhere between 18-23°C) and in indirect light - too much direct sunlight can scorch the plant’s leaves.

Plant Bio

The aglaonema is native to Southeast Asia and belongs to the Arum family, a type of flowering plant that often boasts bright, showy foliage. These plants are found under dense foliage on the rainforest floor, meaning that they’re partial to warmth, humidity, and indirect light.

The ‘Cutlass’ variety is named after its long, blade-shaped leaves, which are much more slender than other species.
