Light direction for the Lipstick Aglaonema Plant?
In their natural environment, they survive under the shade of tropical trees, and rarely get direct sun, so they stay indoors until there is some light.
Soil and fertilizer for the plant?
The soil should be able to hold a little water for your aglaonemas plant, enough to remain lightly moist. However, it should be able to quickly drain excess water easily so that you do not risk root rot damage.
A peat-based potting soil with additional perlite is recommended, but you may also consider blending into a bark-based orchid mixture. The soil itself should be quite nitrogen-rich, but should be loose and not dense.
