Comprehensive Care Guide for Your Chinese Evergreen Red Siam

Light Requirements

Adaptable to various lighting conditions, the Red Siam prefers bright, filtered light to keep its leaves vibrant. Avoid direct sunlight to prevent leaf burn.

Watering Requirements

Maintain a consistent watering schedule, allowing the soil to slightly dry between waterings. Ensure good drainage to avoid waterlogging.

Humidity & Temperature

This tropical plant loves humidity. Regular misting, a pebble tray, or a humidifier can help meet its needs. Keep it away from drafts and sudden temperature changes.


A balanced, diluted fertilizer monthly during the growing seasons will support its lush foliage. Reduce feeding in fall and winter.


Repot your Chinese Evergreen Red Siam every 2-3 years or when it becomes root-bound. Choose a pot that is slightly larger and has good drainage. Spring is the best time to repot, giving the plant time to recover and grow throughout the active season.

Common Problems & Solutions

  • Yellowing Leaves: Overwatering is a common cause. Allow the soil to dry more between waterings.
  • Brown Tips: This could indicate low humidity or over-fertilization. Mist more frequently and fertilize less.
  • Drooping: Underwatering or cold stress can lead to drooping. Adjust your watering schedule and ensure the plant is kept in a warm spot.


The Red Siam can be propagated by stem cuttings or division during repotting. Ensure each division has ample roots and at least two or three leaves.

Pet Safety

As with many houseplants, the Red Siam is toxic if ingested by pets. Keep it in a safe location.
