Dear Derek,

Actually those colourful Aglaonema hybrids from Thailand, etc.,
are a lot easier to grow now than the first ones that came out. The A.
rotundum genes made them a problem to grow but this has been bred out to a
great extent, without losing the red, in fact at some breeders? places near
Bangkok I saw solid red leaves ! I bought a cv. called Valentine with a lot
of red which was bred by Dr. Mehta in Thailand and I just keep splitting it
up and multiplying it with no more care than I would give to any other
aglaonema.. Aroiders may not go for them but I think the general public
will in that it?s almost impossible to get anything any other colour than
green, silver, etc., in a house plant. Now with these Aglaonema hybrids, it
is possible. But we will see how it works out in the long run.
