PropagationEasy 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.
Misc FactsAglaonema is derived from, the Greek words aglos (bright) and nema (thread).
Author's NotesI 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.
