Easy to root from stem section cuttings and tip cuttings. Older plants can be divided. To do stem section cuttings, cut a six inch piece of stem and insert into a rooting media. Make sure that the stem is oriented properly. If I do a lot of the cane cuttings I use a marker to mark which is bottom and which is top.
Aglaonema is derived from, the Greek words aglos (bright) and nema (thread).
I have found these to be one of the toughest plants for indoor displays. We had these all over the school when I was teaching horticulture.
