The First Diamond Aglaonema will grow in any indoor room. However, preferring moderate to high humidity levels, it is ideal for growing in a bathroom or kitchen.

This aglaonema can tolerate low to bright light, just don’t let it receive harsh direct sunlight, which can harm the foliage. Brighter light levels will help encourage strong and lush growth.
First Diamond Aglaonema Plant Care
Preferring higher humidity levels, this plant will benefit from being placed on a wet pebble tray and being misted regularly. Native to subtropical areas, it is no surprise that this plant likes to be kept at 65 to 80 °F.

Watering First Diamond Aglaonema
The First Diamond Aglaonema prefers to be kept moist; a weekly watering is generally sufficient during the warmer months. If you are unsure when to water this aglaonema, waiting until the top inch of soil has dried out before watering next can be a good guide. During winter, watering can be reduced, which will help avoid root rot.

Feeding the First Diamond Aglaonema monthly with a balanced houseplant fertilizer from spring until fall can help promote lush foliage and strong growth.
