Plant Expert Reply:

It looks like you have an Aglaomena sometimes referred to as a Chinese Evergreen. The water on the desk is perplexing. Is the water dripping from the leaves. Is it water or a sticky substance? A sticky substance could indicate an insect problem or damage to the plant. When you water the plant do not wet the leaves only the soil.

As for Aglaomena (Chinese Evergreen) care instructions are as follows:

Light: Filter light or partial shade – no direct sunlight.

Water: Keep soil evenly moist; occasionally letting it dry slightly. Mist plant with lukewarm water every day.

Fertilizer: Feed a balanced fertilizer every 2 to 3 weeks except during the winter.

Let me know more about the water and I will try to figure out if it is a problem.

    water is dripping from the leaves i will ask if it truly is water or a sticky substance i believe water because they did not say it was sticky when they had to wipe it up.
