    Hi Nancy, I just now saw your second post. You’re welcome Nancy! And thank you for sharing your experience with your Aglaonema. I keep this in mind if I ever decide to grow these lovely plants. Laura

    Thank you Laura 735, for identifying my Aglaonema. After reading epicgardening.com/aglaonema/ I think I know what went wrong. The plant was beautiful and healthy until a tightly spun spider coccoon on the underside of a leaf produced hundreds of tiny spiders. After I removed them and sprayed the plant with Neem it began to wilt and I repotted it – new pot, new soil and probably way too much bone meal and blood meal mixed in. At least now that I know its name I can buy another one. Again, thank you for your help. Nancy

    Maybe a cultivar of the Chinese evergreens (Aglaonema)(?). It’s hard to tell what’s exactly wrong with your plant from a photo. Check out the included link below for Aglaonema’s diseases & symptoms toward the end of the article. You could try to get in touch with them for further help. On the side note if this was my plant. I would check or drainage. Also I would separate the clump and pick out the healthy looking ones and plant in another pot. Best wishes! https://www.epicgardening.com/aglaonema/
