Images are used for general reference only. The size and shape of each plant will vary as will the bloom state 

Light: Aralias can be sensitive to direct light. Place them in an area where light is bright but indirect or filtered. Too much direct sun can burn the leaves.

Water:  Water as soil goes dry to the touch, approximately once every 7-10 days. The most common reason aralias die is overwatering. You should allow the container to dry out almost 50% of the way before watering it. The bottom of the pot should never be flooded with water.

Environment: Like most tropical houseplants, aralias prefer humid environments. Mist often or keep a humidifier in the room, especially in the winter. They will drop leaves if it is too dry. Keep away from hot or cold drafts.

Toxicity: Reported to be toxic to humans and pets

Of note: 

  • Signs of overwatering include yellow, drooping, and dropping leaves.
  • Check occasionally for signs of spider mites and treat promptly with an insecticidal soap or neem oil.
    *When planting in a pot without a drainage hole, avoid over watering by estimating 25% of the container’s overall volume, with appropriate drainage materials incorporated when planting.
