Stripes was hybridized by the foliage plant breeding program at the Central Florida Research and Education Center, Apopka. A cross between Aglaonema x 'Manila' and A. nitidum 'Curtisii' was used to make 'Stripes'.

Aglaonemas are usually grown as houseplants because they are very tolerant of the usual house conditions.
