☘ Origin: Tropical Asia

Symbolism: The Chinese Evergreen foliage represents purity, nature and the positive energy it radiates.
Prefers bright indirect light, and it can adapt to low light conditions. Give your plant a turn every few days to expose all sides to light for even growth from all sides.
Water when the top 50% of the soil is dry, and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.
To give your plant the absolute best, room-temperature rainwater and bottled spring water are your best options. Any water containing sugar or salt will hurt your plant!
It can survive in a low humidity environment but will thrive with higher humidity levels. Mist the leaves 2-3 times a week with filtered water, place a humidifier nearby, or use a pebble tray to raise the humidity.
Prefers temperatures between (18-24°C). Avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.
Feed once a month during the spring and summer with a especial fertilizer for indoor plants.
Moderately toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting.
If you notice the tips or edges of your plant’s leaves are turning brown, often with a yellowish hue at the edge, it could be due to your tap water. Allow your tap water to sit out overnight before watering so the chlorine and fluoride can evaporate. Alternatively, you can water with filtered water or rainwater. Remove any yellow leaves to keep your plant strong and growing.
