Aglaonema María and Silver Queen were grown under 63%, 80% and 92% shade to determine the optimum shade level or light intensity level for commercial production. María's shoot height and number of offsets increased as the shade level decreased. In Silver Queen the number of leaves increased and the number of offsets decreased as the shade level increased. The highest number of offsets was produced by Silver Queen at 63% shade. Light intensity at 63% nylon fiber shade increased offset production in both Silver Queen and María. Thus, 63% shade seems to be the ideal shade for aglaonema offset production.
