Neotropical Plant Aglaonema Pictam Tricolor Andaman
The author previously introduced in this blog how to train Aglaonema.
In this article, I would like to introduce Andaman, which I introduced a little about the Pictam species last time.
Actually, I got Andaman at a certain auction.
This is Andaman when it actually arrived at the author’s hand.
Port Blair northern region
According to the seller’s explanation of the auction, “I guarantee that it must have been split from the parent stock collected locally from the northern part of Port Blair.”
If you look at these colors and patterns, you can see that they show the characteristics of Andaman.
When I actually see this camouflage color, I cannot help but be impressed by the beauty of nature.
And here is how the second leaf started to open about 10 days later.
The young leaves already show the unique shades of Andaman.
Now, if you look closely at the first leaf, you can see that the shades of green have become a clearer contrast.
The fact that the leaves opened in about 10 days makes me feel that the growth rate is relatively fast.
I never get tired of watching it.
The current growing environment is carefully observed while maintaining a certain degree of humidity in the 90 cm glass aquarium that was used before, and sprayed as appropriate.
In any case, I am thinking of watching the future growth and being careful not to die.
We will continue to make longer-term reports.
Considering Andaman's camouflage color
Considing Andaman’s camouflage.
If you look carefully towards the first leaves, you will notice the presence of subtle camouflage colors. Now, take a look at the picture below. I wrote the numbers in the red circles. 1. Dark green, 2. Bright green, 3. Green close to white, 4. Bright whitish color that looks like silver.
At first, I thought there were three colors, dark green, bright green, and whitish, but in reality there were four. If you don't look carefully, the difference between 4 and 3 is subtle, but they are clearly different colors. Is this a feature of Andaman? In fact, this feature also appeared in the new young leaves.
Although it is subtle, its characteristics can be seen in the difference between "a" and "b" in the red circle. Over time, it will change more clearly, like an old leaf. Transition to ultra-humid environment.
The third drill is growing.
It's still small, but ...
