  Aglaonema question
From: Leslie Georgeson skinnychick2 at yahoo.com> on 2006.07.22 at 09:46:56(14433)
Hi everyone, I was hoping one of you would be able to help me identify an Aglaonema that I haven't been able to find a correct name for. It's similar to A. commutatum 'Treubii' except that the silverish-pale green markings are stripes rather than blotches. It may be a hybrid, but I'm not real familiar with Aglaonemas, so I'm not sure. Anyway, I'm attaching a photo of a leaf to see if anyone is able to help. Thanks so much! Leslie

Hi Leslie, my first impression was that it
looked like 'Stripes', a commercial hybrid on the market in the last number
of years. But after comparing mine, 'Stripe' is just green and a
silvery-gray, and doesn't have the intermediate 3rd color your plant
exhibits. I wouldn't doubt, though, that this is one of the many,
many commercial hybrids produced in hybridizing programs such as Dr Frank
Brown's in Valkaria FL, that have improved size, color and growing
qualities in Aglaonemas for growing in home and office.

What else can you tell us about this pretty
Aglaonema? Where did you obtain it? What color are the petioles... light or dark
green, white or mottled? The leaf blade looks quite
large...how long are the leaves, and how
wide?

Dear Leslie,

It is a hybrid between A. nitidum and A. commutatum.

The petioles are dark green. Thanks.
