Aglaonema is a genus of approximately 20 species of perennials from tropical Asia, commonly called Chinese Evergreen. The name comes from the Greek word aglaos, meaning bright or clear, and nema, meaning thread. They grow naturally under large leafed canopies so tolerate and are happiest in low light levels. Aglaonema do flower but as the flowers take a lot of energy from the plant it is best to remove them. Fun Fact - Aglaonema is the title character's beloved houseplant featured in the film Leon.
