Did you know that some people consider Aglaonemas - Lucky? In fact that’s how some people pick their lotto numbers.
A large group of people in Asia consider Aglaonemas to be a good omen but you have to grow and own one. The Chinese people believe you can have - Good Luck - by growing Aglaonema modestum. Thai people largely refer to Aglaonemas as - smiles of fortune plants.
In 1986 the - Good Luck - Aglaonema really hit. A monsoon rain hit in Malaysian. After the monsoon a Malaysian man started walking through his garden. He looked over at his Aglaonema plant and noticed a series of numbers etched in the rain water.
He wrote down the numbers and decided to purchase a ticket with those numbers. It turns out the his ticket was the winner in the national lottery. Since that time many people in southeast Asia are caring for their Aglaonemas much better. This has even rolled over to the United States where people regularly buy plants and count the dots for their numbers.
Maybe you have a winning plant at home right now.
