When caring for Aglaonema nitidum, special attention must be taken to the soil and container it is placed in. When grown in a container, the soil should be kept consistently moist, and allowed to dry slightly between waterings. The container must be well-draining, and should be placed in a section of the garden that gets partial shade or semi-shade. If grown indoors, it should be placed in an area that receives bright, indirect sunlight. When any new leaves appear, it is important to avoid any contact with the irritant sap they produce.

Overall, Aglaonema nitidum is a great addition to any home, thanks to its evergreen foliage and small size. It is a very versatile plant and can tolerate both direct and indirect light, making it easy to accommodate it in any living space. With the right soil, container, and proper care, Chinese Evergreen can be a great addition to any garden.
