Show moreThe Aglaonema commutatum is a genuine rain forest plant and therefore loves moisture and really does not like full sun! The Aglaonema commutatum likes to be kept humid so spray the leaves regularly with rainwater to keep them fresh. If the atmosphere is too dry, the edges of the leaves will dry out.
Water less in the winter and stand it in a cooler spot but still above 16 degrees centigrade.
