Water requirement of Aglaonema Pink Majesty
Aglaonema Pink Majesty’s important to keep up a regular watering routine. In summer you want to keep the soil moist but not soggy. To monitor this, you can use your finger to poke into the top 5 cm of potting mix and feel the soil moisture level before watering. If it feels particularly wet, let it dry out for longer. Overwatering can lead to fungal issues or root rot. Try watering once a week, using just enough water to start to see some draining from the bottom of the pot. During winter, when the Pink Majesty isn’t in an active growing phase you should reduce watering frequency.
With almost all plants, drainage is essential. Ensure that whatever vessel your plant is in, there are sufficient holes in the bottom to allow excess water to freely drain from the pot and away from the plant’s roots. These tropical plants don’t do well with long periods of dryness, they express this through dry, brown leaf tips and margins. They can also experience moisture stress from a lack of watering routine, they express this through yellowing leaves. Keep monitoring them to ensure the happy balance of moisture within the soil.

- Propagation via root cuttings – This method is the safest and assures success, plant is separated from mother plant with roots and planted in a new container and kept in indirect sun light, newly planted plant starts building own root system in quick time like 5 -10 days. 15 -35 degree celsius temperature is ideal for this method too.
- Propagation via tissue culture – This method is used for producing large quantity aglaonema seedling in quick time with the small fraction of original plant, root, stem or leaves. Tissue culture seedlings needs to be kept in lab type environment and slowly trend to adapt the natural weather conditions, many of seedlings die or grow very slow during this process, still this method is the best way for propagating the plant in high quantity and good quality.
