Aglaonema pumilum

One of the lesser-known, smaller Aglaonemas with very surprising foliage colours and patterns, Aglaonema pumilum is an evergreen perennial. Typically grows up to 40cm tall. Thick, leathery elliptic to lance-shaped, very dark to light green leaves with attractive silver-gray blotches on erect, sometimes branched stems.

Genus name comes from the Greek words aglaos meaning bright or clear and nema meaning a thread in reference to the stamens.
