It's well known as chinese evergreen.
There are a lot of variety of this genus.
Aglaonema is an evergreen perennial herbs with stems growing erect or decumbent and creeping.
Stems that grow along the ground may root at the nodes.
I love the thick, glossy and colorful leaves.
It have so many pattern of the leaves.
This one of my favorite variety 'Heng heng"...

This plant will grow well in shady area.
It's native in the tropical rain forest, growing well under the canopy of the forest.
Shady and humid area is the best place for it.
My husband bought it (just a pot with three leaves) about four years ago.
Actually this is my husband collection.
Now, I have six pots of it.

I put it in front of my kitchen.
So... I get more beautiful view, every time I worked in the kitchen.
