Chinese Evergreen

Chinese evergreens are popular houseplants across Asia and for good reason too. Not only do they bring prosperity into the house but these perennial herbs are counted among the most durable houseplants you can ever grow. Theytolerate poor light, dry air and drought very well.


In other words, even if you travel around a lot or forget to water the plant or even if you live in not-so-sunny-places, the plant holds no grudges and continues to thrive!


They have lance shaped leaves in shades of silver, gray, or shades of green.


Different Varieties of Chinese Evergreen: Button ferns, Maidenhair ferns, Holly ferns, Asparagus ferns and Staghorn ferns.


  • Maintenance of plant :

    The only demand the plant makes from you is to protect it from extreme cold and excessive sunlight since it can tolerate neither. Also prune any inflorescence immediately to prolong the life of the plant and keep a watch out for pests as well.

    Low to medium light.

    Needs to be evenly moist. Add only a small amount of fertilizer as the plants are easily injured when over supplemented.

    Since Chinese Evergreens need the soil to be evenly moist, you could opt for moderate watering. Allow the soil to dry out a bit in between the intervals.
