Caring For A Red Lime

A part of the Aglaonema (Chinese Evergreen) family - with over 40 varieties in different shapes and colours - Red Limes are the loud species of the bunch, known for their minimal green borders and dark red foliage.

Just like the White Lime, Red Limes are also known for being resilient and easier to care for than most plants. They're perfect for offices and the homes of plant beginners.

Popular in East Asian homes, Chinese Evergreens are believed to be a symbol of fortune and wealth.

Light: Bright indirect sunlight

Red Limes want a lot of bright indirect sunlight.

However, as with all plants, be careful with direct sunlight (especially near untinted windows), as too much will cause the water in your plant's leaves to evaporate, causing its leaves to curl or burn. This risk of scorching is higher if your plant gets direct sunlight during the middle of the day, when the day is hottest. Either way, keep an eye open for brown scorch marks on your leaves and, if you spot any, move it a few feet further away from your window.

In general, try to avoid more than 1-2 hours of direct sunlight a day.

Pro tip: Aglaonema are highly tolerant to lower light levels (though they will grow more slowly and with less foliage the less light they get). To successfully acclimate your Red Lime in a low-light area, start by placing it by a window when you bring it to your home. Then, over the course of 4-5 weeks, as your plant acclimates to your space, you can slowly move it towards the spot with less light.

Water: Every 1-2 weeks

To check if a Red Lime is ready for watering, stick your finger ~2 inches into the soil to feel for the moisture. If the soil feels completely dry, you can water your plant again. As with any plant, always make sure to throw any excess water away. Water should never be sitting at the bottom of the pot.

The more light your plant gets, the more you'll need to water it. Similarly, the less light it gets, the less it will need.

Difficulty: Low maintenance

RedLimes don't need much beyond adequate sunlight and correct watering. Get its placement right and you'll find yourself with an easy and highly rewarding plant to care for.

Pets: Careful with pets

This plant may cause mild mouth and stomach irritation if ingested.

Meaning & Symbolism

Like Money Trees, Chinese Evergreens are a symbol of good fortune and prosperity. The perfect gift for bringing good luck into somebody’s home.
