Product Description

Evan the Chinese Evergreen

Evan the Chinese Evergreen (red aglaonema) is not one for attention. Even though he was a boxing star in High School, he is very independent and enjoys his time alone, binge watching his favorite shows.

All About Evan

Place of Birth: Subtropical rainforests of Thailand (and now our lush greenhouse)

Origin: Evan is part of the Araceae family, which can be traced all the way back to the early 1700’s in the Philippines.

Favorite Place to Hang: Evan can be found in the gym, at the office finishing up some last minute projects, or in the living room just hanging out and catching up on his Netflix shows.

(Real talk: Evan is a low light houseplant. This includes rooms that have partially shaded windows by outdoor trees or very small windows that let in a small amount of sunlight. Even tables set in the middle of a room, far from any window, would be a low light situation. Think of it this way: if you can’t easily read a book, then it is probably a low light situation!

Although it’s a low light plant, it can  also tolerate medium light (indirect bright light)–like 5-10 feet away from a West or South facing window. If you are unsure what way your windows face, take your phone and use the compass app! Point it at the area you would like to place Evan. Please note, obstructions like trees or buildings outside, can cause a considerable decrease in the available sunlight.)

Favorite Drink: Water, water, water!! Unless he’s taking a break from boxing, then his usual drink of choice is whiskey on the rocks.

Favorite Food: Not a big foodie, except on his birthday when he goes all out on his favorite meal.

Best Friends: Fred the Snake Plant, Zayne the ZZ Plant, Kona the Hawaiian Pothos & Mia the Marble Queen Pothos

Fun Fact: Evan is extremely tough and can take a beating from time to time. This stems from his childhood, where he grew up idolizing Muhammad Ali and would go to the gym every week just to be like him.He’s much stronger than he looks and always puts up a good fight. Throughout high school, Evan became the star boxer in his town and even won a state championship.
