You can send an Aglaonema "Silver Queen" plant care question but before you do, please read this page, further information on watering your indoor plants, how to help keep your house plant's root system healthy and lighting for your house plants. These are most important for your Aglaonema Silver Queen house plant's health and this is some of the information I will refer you to when you send an email.

Aglaonema Silver Queen plant has a bush-like or clumping growth and, depending on the pot size, can be from 8 inches to 4 feet in height. Almost all varieties of Aglaonema plants are variegated to some extent.

Keep in mind that the variegated types need more light than those with less variegation. Typically, the lighter the color of a plant, the higher the light levels it needs to maintain its color and variegation.

Temperatures for Aglaonema Silver Queen should be at a minimum of 60°F. It is easily damaged by cold drafts and temperatures. Keep away from cold spots and in the winter time move away from cold window panes.

Place your Aglaonema Silver Queen plant in any shaded location, preferably bright, indirect light. Full sun, especially through glass, will most likely burn the exposed leaves. The Aglaonema Silver Queen plant will survive in low light levels but the plant will become thin and leggy over time. For a really nice looking plant, try to provide bright, diffused natural light or artificial light for a minimum of 8 hours a day.

Ideal for use in professional office space, Aglaonema Silver Queen is attractive and easy care. This is a great plant for areas with artificial lighting.

Plant Care Tips

Please read the section on watering and lighting for more on the most important parts of your plant's care.

As the stems on your Aglaonema Silver Queen grow taller, they often lose some of their lower leaves. To keep your Aglaonema plant fuller, you can cut back the tallest stem or stalk to promote new growth lower in the plant. Just cut to a height where you want new growth to start.

Mealy bugs are one of the most common insect problems that you will have with Aglaonema Silver Queen. An oval shaped, somewhat flattened body and six legs distinguish this insect, although they can appear to have more legs because of their "antennae" and "tails". They also have a fringe around the body. A waxy, protective substance covers the body of adults and egg sacs giving them a cottony appearance.

Normally mealy bugs are found in hidden areas so be sure to check undersides of the leaves and leaf axils. Mealy bugs excrete a sticky substance called honeydew so if your plant feels sticky, suspect mealybugs. Keep an eye out for these plant pests, especially when you first bring a new plant home.

Quarantine new additions to your plant family for at least two weeks. You want to be sure your plant is pest free before placing with any other house plants. The incubation period for many houseplant insects is 7-10 days. Anything you might have missed should show up within 2 weeks.

Washing with a spray mixture of mild liquid dish soap and water is also helpful in keeping any pest problems in check. Treat until run off, let dry then apply the second wash. You must be sure to hit the undersides of the leaves and the stems also. Twice a week for two weeks and your plant should be safe.

Never apply anything onto your plants leaves with the plant in the sun or when the soil is dry. Move out of the sun and water first.
