There is generally a crown of wide leaf blades which in wild species are often variegated with silver and green coloration.They are slow growing and will only need repotting every other year. Aglaonema are generally low-growing plants that will only very gradually reveal their trunks.
The Red Aglaonema is also one of the most stylish & this stunner shows off dark green leaves elegantly flushed with bright red or pink.
