January plant

This plant, also known as an “Aglaonema,” is one of the best houseplants for beginners.  It can tolerate almost any light, except full sun, and is easy to grow indoors.  Water thoroughly in the summer and mist the plant often to raise humidity.   During the winter, reduce watering but do not let the plant dry out completely.  These plants do not like cold drafts or temperatures below 65 F.  Be sure to keep them away from drafty windows or vents and the warmer the spot you can find for them, the better.

Each month, a member of Clermont Garden Club shares a plant with Cooper Memorial Library to introduce Clermont residents  and surroundings areas to a variety of horticulture, promote interest in Clermont Garden Club, plus promote a love of gardening.

Clermont Garden Club members meet every third Wednesday of the month, at the clubhouse, 849 West Avenue, Clermont, Florida 34711.  Meetings begin at 10:00 A.M.  New members and guests are warmly welcomed.

Clermont Garden Club is a 501(c)3 non – profit organization.
