Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral Kell On Nov 12, 2006, Kell from Northern California, CA (Zone 9b) wrote:

This plant is usually grown as a houseplant because it can tolerate many conditions. BJ Freeman is one of the largest of the Aglaonemas and can reach 4 feet with a span of 3 feet. Give it plenty of room for its leaves can be easily damaged. If it gets leggy, just prune out the growth tips and it should send up new shoots. Supply good light but no direct sun. It is also known as “Cecelia” or “Gabrielle."
