Aglaonema Maria Benefits
Maria is a laid-back beauty that doesn’t require a lot of hassle. A great easy-care plant, Maria would be a thoughtful gift to your beginner plant buddies. Other benefits of the Aglaonema include its ability to clean air and boost energy. The energy comes naturally when people breathe in cleaner oxygen, and Aglaonema houseplants help to do just that. When the plant goes through photosynthesis, it absorbs carbon dioxide and other air toxins and replaces them with pure air. The more Aglaonema's you have, the easier it is for them to clean the air in the room they're placed in.
The long, winding foliage looks like the ripples of a river, paired with the splash of lime markings on the leaves that look as if water droplets have fallen. Their bright, cream coloring together with the dark green leaf backs looks like it’s being brightened by the sun's rays shining through the open spots of lush canopies nearby.
Maria’s first name, Aglaonema comes from the Greek words ‘aglaos’, which means bright, shiny, or clear, while ‘nema’ means long, and thin or some variation of those words. All the Aglaonema varieties maintain these features. While they differ in leaf variegation, they all maintain the tall, shiny leaves we know and love.
Many Different Types
The Chinese Evergreen Maria is one of 20 different species of leafy perennials that come from Asia. What we love about perennials is that they show up at different times of the year, so if you have multiples, you can have healthy plants all year around. Other Aglaonema you can find here is the Aglaonema Cutlass, Red, Sombat Siam, and Silver Bay. Why don’t you collect them all? We even have individual planters available ranging from cool to cute for you to choose from.
