Chinese Evergreen 'Pink Valentine' Overview
Aglaonema commutatum 'Pink Valentine' is an attractive, variegated pink and green-leaved, evergreen perennial cultivar from the aroid family, Araceae. The species it was bred from originates from tropical and subtropical climates in Asia and New Guinea. Commonly known by the name Chinese Evergreen 'Pink Valentine'. This plant is thought to be the same as Aglaonema 'Lady Valentine'. This tender plant is adapted to low light conditions, making it a good choice for growing as a houseplant. It won't cope with freezing temperatures, bright indirect light is best and moist, well-draining soil. It produces beautiful, variegated green foliage with pink and dark green speckles. The lance-shaped leaves are mostly pink to whitish, with green margins. The variegation will be more pronounced when grown in stronger lighting, but take care with strong sunlight as this can damage the leaves. Flowers can appear, but this is uncommon, particularly when grown indoors as a houseplant. They are white in colour and similar to those of Peace Lilies.
