Aglaonema, yes. Silver Queen, no. It really isn’t big enough to do any pruning on. Normally you would wait until there is 3-4” of green stem below the leaves to do any pruning. That would take at least a year in decent light. If you want it bushier faster, find a couple more and plant them together in a bigger pot.
