Aglaonema pictum 'Tricolour' - Small 14cm / 1.3L

$45.00


Please note these rarities are still babies and have imperfections. They are yet to display their full glorious leaf pattern displayed in the second example picture but each new leaf gets more impressive. Some have minor marks or holes but these leaves will all fall in the next year as mature leaves replace them plus they are almost half the price of those in garden centres and we've got plenty for everyone so if you want perfect, visit us in-store to choose your own. 


One of the top 'Wishlist' plants for every houseplant collector due to the incredible camouflage-like pattern on the leaves of Aglaonema pictum tricolor. The Tricolour name coming from the 3 tones of green splashed across the foliage. Aglaonema pictum tricolor just gets more and more impressive over time and eventually grow into a multi-stemmed clump that will be at home on any tabletop or shelf and is best viewed from above 

Light Requirements: Bright Indirect Light is ideal, though very tolerant of lower light levels.

Moisture & Soil Requirements: Prefers to be kept a little drier through winter and can even survive going dry, water deeply and infrequently whilst draining soil of excess moisture thoroughly in summer.

Growth & Nutrients: Grows in clumps, losing older leaves and exposing upright canes. Suits apartments or homes of any size. Feed with a general-purpose fertiliser for containers from the start of spring each year to autumn when growth slows down.

Temperature, Humidity & Ambient requirements: Prefers warm humid environments inside but can deal with most home environments. Ideal plant for kitchens & bathrooms indoors.

Toxicity: Moderately toxic. Don't let anyone or anything eat it.

Plant Size Guide

The plant in the photos is an example and an approximate guide only however we try to show an average sized example. Sizes, flowering state and colours change throughout the seasons and variation will occur. In summer & autumn, plants are often larger or the same size as than the example picture but around winter and spring, they can be a little smaller but still at a size similar to the example. We aim to update the pictures to reflect significant differences.

Plants in Transit

Each Small, Medium & Large plant is individually contained within its own protective cardboard Plant Carton which may be joined to other cartons in your order.

Plants typically take just a day or two to arrive, however they are usually fine in their cartons for 1-2 weeks, and many can go longer, so a few extra days are not usually cause for concern.
