We here at Ed’s find Aglaonema to be some of the most underappreciated plants in the shop. Other than the typical Snake or ZZ Plant, these extremely easy to care for plants are some of the ones we recommend most to beginners or those who might need a more independent species. These will bounce back quickly and easily if you miss a watering, and they make it super easy to know when it’s time for a drink by wilting when they’re thirsty and then perking right back up upon being watered. If they lose a leaf or two don’t fret as it’s probably already pushing a new one up through its center, even if you keep it in a shadier spot in your home. Coming in a variety of colors and patterns, they’re easy to match to your decor and can add a lush element to any NYC apartment, even those that might not be the brightest.
