Care Plan for Chinese Evergreen 'First Diamond'

Light: This plant performs well in low to medium indirect light, making it suitable for spaces away from direct sunlight. It can tolerate some degree of shade but thrives best in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

Watering: Water the 'First Diamond' when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. It’s important to let the soil dry out between waterings to prevent root rot. Overwatering is a common mistake with Chinese Evergreens and can lead to leaf yellowing and other health issues.

Humidity: Average household humidity is generally adequate for this plant, though it appreciates higher humidity environments. If your home is particularly dry, consider using a humidifier or placing the plant on a pebble tray with water to increase the surrounding humidity.

Temperature: Keep the plant in an environment with temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). Avoid exposure to drafts and temperatures below 60°F (15°C), as cold air can damage the leaves.

Child and Pet Safety: The Chinese Evergreen 'First Diamond' is toxic to pets and humans if ingested. It contains calcium oxalate crystals that can irritate the mouth, tongue, and stomach, causing swelling and discomfort. Keep this plant out of reach of children and pets.

General Tips: Fertilize every two months during the growing season with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength. Clean the leaves regularly with a soft, damp cloth to remove dust and enhance the plant’s natural beauty. Prune any yellow or damaged leaves to keep the plant healthy and attractive.
