Acidic soil is conducive to the growth of the root system.
Aglaonema commutatum 'Silver Queen' likes warm environment, suitable for plant growth temperature between 20 degrees to 24 degrees, winter temperature around 10 degrees.In winter, when the temperature is below 5 degrees, plants will be frostbitten; in summer, when the temperature is above 30 degrees, plants will stop growing and their leaves will appear dry and yellow.Keep plants indoors during the winter and in a cool, airy place during the summer.
