Aglaonema nitidum or Chinese Evergreen is a small evergreen shrub, typically growing anywhere between 2-5 feet tall. This ornamental foliage is incredibly versatile, making it a great addition to any home or garden. Aglaonema nitidum grows best in USDA zones 9-11 and prefers to be in partial shade or semi-shade, as an overexposure to direct sunlight can cause the leaves to burn. This plant requires moderate water, about once a week, in order to keep the soil moist.

When grown in a container, Aglaonema nitidum can be a great choice for indoor or outdoor locations, making it an ideal houseplant. As a smaller shrub, it is perfect for those looking for a smaller, evergreen bush to brighten up their space. Additionally, Chinese Evergreen is a great option for gardeners in cold regions, since it can be easily moved indoors during the winter season.

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.

Alocasia baginda, commonly known as the Dragon Scale, is a small shrub native to South Asia growing between two to five feet tall. It is an ornamental plant known for its lush foliage which is heart shaped and has notable veins in its lower side. Many varieties exist with slight differences from the main species.

Alocasia baginda require regular watering and can be grown in semi-shade and places receiving moderate sunlight. It requires very little maintenance and can thrive in slightly acidic soil with good drainage. As perennial plants, they can survive for many years in the same pot.

In colder regions, it''s important to follow certain tips for growing the Alocasia baginda in a pot. Choose a pot with good drainage and a soil mix with a good ratio of organic material such as peat moss, manure, and compost. If the soil is too dense, it can be supplemented with sand and perlite. The potting mix should be able to retain moisture and retain nutrients.

It is also ideal to keep the pot in a sheltered area which receives some light, although not too much. As the Alocasia baginda likes moisture, watering the plant once daily is suggested. During colder months, it is best to water the plant less frequently, ideally when the top soil is dry. Adding a layer of mulch on top of the soil can also help retain moisture and control weeds. Fertilizing the plant once every three months is recommended for optimal growth.
