Starburst Aglaonema is one easy-to-care-for tropical plant that is perfect for the first-time gardener. The large colorful leaves are marbled with red, green, pink, and white, all on the same plant. Starburst Chinese Evergreen makes a colorful addition to any tropical plant collection and will grow well in almost any spot of the house.

Best Locations For Growing Starburst Aglaonema

The larger size of the Chinese Evergreen makes it an excellent backdrop for other tropical plants in a sunroom or conservatory-type room. Humid and brightly lit rooms such as bathrooms or kitchens are also good spots. Chinese Evergreens can be grown outdoors during the summer with added shade during the hottest parts of the day. Chinese Evergreen is highly toxic to pets and children.

Starburst Aglaonema Sunlight Requirements

Indirect bright light will keep Starburst Aglaonema vividly colored and thriving. A south-facing exposure with some filtered light in the windows is perfect. It can also thrive in 4 hours of direct sunlight in an east or west-facing direction. Aglaonema can be grown in lower light levels, although the brilliant colors of Starburst will be dulled.

Starburst Aglaonema Care

Aglaonema prefers to be slightly root-bound and does not need repotting regularly. Use an all-purpose indoor potting soil that has added perlite or orchid bark for good drainage and looseness. Terra cotta or other unglazed pots will help the roots of Aglaonema dry out in between waterings and reduce the possibility of overwatering.

Watering Starburst Aglaonema

Let the top 2-3 inches of potting soil dry out before watering Starburst. During the summer, watering may need to be done 1-2 times a week while the plant is actively growing. In the winter, Starburst will slow growth and require much less water. Check for dryness every 10-14 days. Keep humidity high around this plant by placing it in a tray filled with pebbles. When the water runs out of the drainage hole, the stones keep the pot out of standing water while letting the water evaporate naturally and providing added humidity. Using a spray bottle to mist the plant for humidity is fine as well. Make sure to use distilled or spring water. Tap water that is hard or has softener chemicals in it will leave white mineral deposits on the leaves. 

Feeding Starburst Aglaonema

A balanced, liquid houseplant fertilizer can be applied once a month. Dilute the feed to half the manufacturer's recommendation.  Avoid getting any of the fertilizer on the leaves, as it will spot them and possibly cause them to burn.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
