Aglaonema Lipstick Care Tips:
● The plant parents face one common problem for Aglaonema which is called ‘tipping’. In this condition, the leaves of the plants turn brown and eventually it dries out. This is a common symptom of different problems like overwatering, and fertilizer burn. It is always better to avoid normal tap water for this plant as generally, it contains chlorine, salts, and fluoride.
● If the Aglaonema is potted in a planter; then it is able to tolerate the normal humidity level of the house. In case, you find a brown tip in Aglaonema, then it may be due to dry air. In case, you stay in a dry place, consider buying the humidifier to increase the humidity level. You can also keep the plant in the bathroom for better humidity.
● Aglaonema Lipstick is a low feeder. They don’t need much food. So, you should stick to liquid fertilizer or slow-release fertilizer for this plant. You just add the fertilizer directly to the soil in the growing season like spring and summer.
● Never keep the plant in standing water as the root rot is another huge problem for Aglaonema Lipstick. You have to make sure that the planter has proper drainage. However, you have to keep in mind that the soil should be moist and warm all the time.
● The Chinese Evergreen plants are hard to kill and you can repot them every two years. The potting soil must be aerated and loose that allows the roots to breathe.
