Aglaonema is one of three names for our favorite plants everywhere! It's hard to find much more than that, with its unique features, lush foliage, ease of maintenance, and the ability to adapt to any home or office. Commonly referred to as "Chinese evergreen", this plant is native to the forests of southern Asia and appreciates direct sunlight as the sun can burn its leaves directly. Ideally, place it a few feet from a bright window that will receive bright light. However, some types of Aglaonema can avoid low light and fluorescent lighting.
