Chinese Evergreen

One of the easiest indoor plants to grow and best houseplants for beginners or busy schedules. This houseplant can tolerate low light levels well and will also reduce indoor air pollutants. An excellent houseplant for a dark room or corner that will also help to purify the air in your home (Removing Benzene and Formaldehyde from the air).

The Chinese Evergreen has some of the most unique foliage variegations throughout the vast array of houseplants we carry here at Fairview, from the white and cream colored variegations to yellows, pinks and reds. Chinese Evergreens prefer medium light, but can tolerate low light, and like to slightly dry in between watering’s. The best way to accomplish this is to allow the top 1-2 inches of soil to dry before watering again. Keep in mind that plants in low light areas will require less water since they will grow at a much slower rate than plants in medium to high light areas. Fertilize once per month and you will enjoy this low maintenance beauty for many years to come.
