SOLVED: What make this plant happy

Kansas City, MO

I can't seem to get this plant happy. Does this plant requires more water than usually house plants? Or maybe it's not getting enough sun or too much. What family is it in.

Your plant looks like it may be a Dieffenbachia (Dumbcane)

Agreed. And I have one of those with the same unrelenting unhappiness. (2 years plus) Mine was a florist decor gift plant with the same incredibly packed stems. I suspect something about that is the root cause.

I do think Hellouha's plant would benefit from dividing/repotting....looks like an awful lot of roots in there.

Sorry Jean but both plants are Aglaonemas but I do agree that they would benefit from repotting into a larger pot. Other than that, they look rather healthy;)

I see Aglaonema as well. Both contenders are in the Araceae (arum family).

They don't seem so unhappy to me. I would start fertilizing with a mild food every third watering, and see if the growth doesn't improve.

Be sure to leave those blinds open too.

Does the pot have a drain hole at the bottom?
