The link currently points to a Dumb Cane (Dieffenbachia maculata). Has toxic properties so read up on what exactly, will tolerate shade, and for watering add water, then let dry down before watering again; object is to allow the roots to breathe in between waterings.

  • Thanks dear . and today i checked whether to add water or not by touching the soil it was moist so i will add water tomorrow or day after tomorrow

  • Update: When i moved to new job i left the plant behind they kept overwatering the motherplant plant and it died. Good thing i took with me one pup with its root intact and now it doing good

Looks like Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema), an easy houseplant. But I am not sure though.

  • Close, but it is a dieffenbachia, not an aglo. They have cylindrical stems
