Unfinished business re: Aglaonema spp.

When I did the Aglaonema post a while back, I didn't have a picture of the variety 'Silver Queen' to put in there. It's one of the older cultivars, and although I have pleasant associations with it, I'd seen it any number of times and not bought one, because it's a little ordinary. Then I wrote the post, and was all like, oh my god, I've got to get a picture of 'Silver Queen,' except that at that moment they were all, inexplicably, unavailable. I've since found (and - sigh - bought) one, so here it is:



I know it looks just like all the others, but it's different. You'll just have to trust me.

I think the unidentified green aglaonema is A. commutatum v. commutatum f. 'Elegans'. This is one of the few ags in my collection that reliably sets seeds, and I have many plants grown from seed. A fairly large grower, I like old, vintage aglaonemas so it's one of my favorites.
