About the genus Aglaonema
In Greek, "Aglos" means "light" and "nema" means "thread." This genus of plants is ideal for keeping indoors as it does not like the usual tropical and sub-tropical environments. Also known as Chinese Evergreen, this plant is very popular for its foliage, both native and variegated. Its oval-shaped leaves with a glossy appearance are very pleasing to the eye.

Aglaonema plants come in hundreds of varieties, each differing in size, color, and shape, but what makes them so popular is how beautiful they are and how well they can adapt to different indoor environments. Aglaonema Pictum Tricolor is one of these beautiful varieties.

Origin and Distribution
The genus Aglaonema was originally found in tropical and subtropical areas of southern China, Malaysia and New Guinea. It has also been found to come from the Philippines. They are not only found thriving in tropical and subtropical rainforests, but are also found around swamps and highlands. What surprises many botanists is that although these plants are native to the tropics, they also like to grow indoors in low humidity environments.

Aglaonema Pictum is found in Sumatra and Nias Island from 2000 meters to 35 meters around the slopes of the popular volcano.
